Family Needs Help to Afford Childcare Costs After Emergency Dental Costs

My Story:

I am a married mother of five: two boys and three grown children that I inherited from my husband. My husband is retired and attending school full time while looking for employment. We are very big sports fans, especially football and basketball, and enjoy spending time with each other as often as possible. I work full time.

While my youngest son and I were playing, he hit his head on my mouth and caused my front tooth to break in half. I had to have an emergency root canal and crown done, and this is left us with huge dental bill. We live paycheck to paycheck and this affected our budget significantly. We are asking Modest Needs to help us pay for childcare or we will be forced to pull my son from the center.

My husband is a full time student and would have to quit school to care for our toddler, or I would have to quit working to care for him. My husband has to complete school in order to get better employment, and I can't lose my job as I am the only one bringing in income. Your assistance during this time will help us maintain stability for our children and put us on track for a brighter future.
