THE STORY:

My dad has been a hard working man his whole life. He raised ten of his own children and six step children. When he was in his thirties he lost my mother to breast cancer. Through all his struggles, he has worked so hard, sometimes three jobs at a time to keep afloat. Despite his hard work ethic, things have never been easy for him and he hasn't been able to put money aside for anything. He is still working full time and supporting his wife, two adult children and half the time also supporting a granddaughter. Now my dad is in constant pain from severe dental problems. He has multiple abscesses and broken teeth. Medicaid and Medicare will only cover a portion of his bill, and we have exhausted all other routes of funding. He will need 18 teeth pulled as well as dentures. At this time he can barely sleep and is being worn down by the lack of sleep, constant pain and the other effects the abscesses have had on his body. I need to get him in to the dentist and get this taken care of before his health gets worse and we lose him before his time. Please help all you can!

DONATION: $500

Being raised poor made me work extra hard physically, and then I had to learn how to quit trying to be in control to let God do His thing. I've been working two jobs, 7 am to 6 pm, to help our family stay solvent because my husband's been unemployed with no insurance for nearly two years now. Please pray that he finds a full time job soon. I am happy to share some of the money God has allowed me to make with you, Cousin Alan! 3 years ago
