This person has left the following thank you note:

I did not think anyone would help someone such as myself. Modest Needs Foundation's and their donor's assistance is a much needed blessing. I am so thankful to be able to have this much needed, costly dental procedure that I otherwise would not be able to afford. THANK YOU SO MUCH to Modest Needs Foundation and all of the most gracious donors.

I'm in the Process of Putting My Life Back Together & Need Help With a Costly Dental Procedure

My Story:

I'm a single man, and I currently live in a transitional facility with other men. I was incarcerated for five years and have recently found work as a construction worker. I have learned a lot, made mistakes, and been through many struggles and am a better man for it. I'm a different person since leaving prison, and I only want to live a quiet life doing honest and fulfilling work. I'm working my way toward financial security but have been unable to get completely on top of my situation due to a dental procedure that I need to have done.

This dental procedure is very important to my health and taking care of this now will ensure that I don't incur further expenses in the future. The cost of the procedure is too much for me to pay alone, and it would wipe out all of the money I have been able to pull together. Because I don't have the funds to pay for this important procedure on my own, I have no other option but to humbly request help with this procedure.

I'm doing my best to pull myself up and to learn from my mistakes, but I know when to ask for help and that time is now. This help would get me the care that I need before the cost of it spirals out of control or before my health deteriorates any further. As I said before, I have learned much from my past and am just trying to do my best to live a quiet and fulfilling life. Words cannot describe how grateful I would be to receive such generous help, and I promise that once my procedure is finished, I will return the favor as best I can by giving back to my community. Thank you all for your understanding and for just taking the time to read my story.
