Forced to Choose: Dental Work or Rent

My Story:

This Davenport, Iowa man is unable to work due to disability and must take care of himself with only the small amount he receives in disability benefits. But when severe dental pain became too much to bear, he made the difficult but crucial choice to see a doctor about his immense suffering, even though it meant going without rent money or electricity or food.

He is asking Modest Needs donors to help pay for his dental work so that he can keep his home, keep his lights on, put food on the table and continue a life with as much dignity and quality as possible.

You can invest in the life of this single Iowa man by recommending this application for funding at 643 points, when we will immediately remit payment in full to his dental office for the essential, pain-relieving care for his teeth.

As of 2011-07-28, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2011-07-29, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $559.00 to Waterford Family Dentistry on behalf of this deserving individual.
