After Losing Work to COVID, I Need Help Affording Dental Care for My Daughter Please!

My Story:

I'm a proud single mother of two amazing high school kids, one son and one daughter. My 14-year-old daughter is laid-back, funny, and she loves to play hockey. She's also really kind-hearted and has been volunteering to foster animals through the Humane Society for the past five years. Her older brother is a junior in high school, and he's a great kid and a great older brother too. My children and I also love spending time with our family dog and cat.

I work part-time as a deaf interpreter currently, and I tend to live paycheck to paycheck now. I was working full-time for the university, but I was laid-off due to budget cuts, and since then, it's been a struggle for my family. I earn enough through provisional income (social security) and through my income as a part-time interpreter for our basic expenses, but anything outside of that is too much for me to handle on my own. So, when my daughter started to have complications with her teeth, I couldn't afford the orthodontist bills. It's been months since she's been able to get to the orthodontist due to our financial hardships, and she really needs the work done on her teeth soon before it gets worse. I'm asking for help with her orthodontist bill because of the urgency of getting this dental treatment for her.

She's really struggling right now because we can't afford to get her teeth fixed. It's causing her a lot of anxiety and pain, and she's losing focus at school as a result; it's really just a bad situation for her. I feel horrible because there's just no way for me to afford her care and keep a roof over our heads and put food on the table. I'm working hard to find full-time work again, but she's going to need treatment before I can save up enough to afford it, so getting this help would be huge for her. We'll be able to pay to have her teeth fixed, and that will relieve a lot of pain and stress from her life. Genuinely, we couldn't be more grateful for this help, and we want to thank everyone who supports us in advance for your generosity and kindness.
