User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeThank you so much for the help you gave to our family. We have been trying to pay off this dental bill for six months or more. When we'd go in for a cleaning, they would ask what we could pay as a sign of good faith, so they didn't have to send the bill to collections. They have been very patient with us, and now we can walk in with payment in hand for the rest of the work that they did so many months ago. We are so grateful to have this weight lifted off of our shoulders. Thank you for providing for the major dental work (implant and crown) that the husband and father of our family needed.

We Need To Have Our Roof Replaced Before Winter, but We Need Help With a Dental Bill to Afford it!

My Story:

My husband and I have a son together, and we also live with our two dogs, Wrangler and Scarlet, as well as our cat, Arusha. Our son is autistic and requires special educational assistance, so I stay home to homeschool him while my husband works full-time. I try to work part-time, but most of my attention goes towards caring for my son and homeschooling him.

We started to have financial troubles when our roof began to leak last February. Although we've managed to patch the leaks up, we need to have the roof fully redone before permanent damage is done to our home when winter arrives. We've been desperately trying to get enough together to replace our roof, but we've hit a roadblock. My husband has to have major dental surgery that is going to set us back quite a bit. As a result, we won't be able to replace our roof in time for winter unless we receive help with this expense. So, we're humbly seeking assistance with the bill for this dental surgery.

If we're going to keep our home in good or even livable condition, then we need to push on and have our roof replaced before winter. However, we won't be able to do that due to the dental surgery my husband has to have. We're going to have to choose between our home and this dental bill going to collections. Truthfully, it's an impossible decision to make because if the dental bill goes to collections, then it could lead to our wages being garnished, thereby jeopardizing our income in the near future. Getting this help would put us in a more stable, and honestly, a safer position going into winter. For that, we would be very grateful and would like to thank everyone who helps us in advance for this generous assistance with this dental bill.
