This person has left the following thank you note:

I would like to take a moment to tank everyone that too the time and consideration to help fund my families medical needs. We were in a tight spot and receiving multiple calls and emails each day. I don't know how I would have gotten out of this situation without help from you all. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart.

Don't Let a Toothache Make Us Homeless

My Story:

I am a single mom of an energetic four-year-old boy who loves playing outside. He's really into dinosaurs and trains! I work full time at an ad agency and he goes to daycare at our church. On the weekends, we like to visit my parents and spend time at the park if the weather lets us.

I make on OK salary, but finances are tight between normal household expenses, a car payment, and daycare expenses. I recently had a toothache and needed to get some dental work done. Most of it was covered by my insurance, but I still owe almost $500 for the work. I have already received two notices and I'm worried the dentist office will send it to collections.

Making this payment on my own will put me behind on other bills. I don't want to be behind with my rent and incur late fees I can't afford. I also can't have my utilities shut off, it is too hot in Louisiana, especially for a small child. Your help will save us from late fees and collections agencies. Thank you for helping to keep our heads above water.
