Daughter Needs Dental Work, Help Married Father of 4 With Cost of Anesthesia

My Story:

I am a married father of four wonderful children. I have two step children ages 13 and 9, and then my wife and I's two youngest children are 5 and 4 years old. I work full time as a valve technician and my wife is trying to start her own photography business.

We were fortunate enough to be able to buy our first home earlier this year after losing everything we owned in a flood in 2016. We finally feel like we are back on our feet. However earlier this year our oldest daughter needed a surgery to remove an obstruction in her nose and since we have a high deductible with our insurance we are still currently paying it off. The dilemma we are facing is that our 5 year old needs dental surgery and we can not afford the cost of anesthesia because we are still currently paying off the previous medical bill. Our insurance does not cover anesthesia at all. We also live paycheck to paycheck so it has been a challenge to us to get these medical bills paid off. We need Modest Needs help with this dental surgery bill so our daughter can get the medical help she needs.

My wife is currently doing things such as donating plasma and trying to sell things or schedule portrait sessions to cover the cost of the actual dental work being done; but the additional cost of anesthesia is very overwhelming to us especially since we need to come up with it by November. Your help we would receive with this funding would help us to not fall any further behind on medical bills and would allow us to get caught up financially. We are also very worried about our daughter's dental health and this would help put our minds at ease. We are planning on putting some of our income tax return in savings so that we have funds available should we ever get in this situation again. We would feel very blessed and grateful and would definitely pay it forward if we were able to receive help from Modest Needs.
