This is the Sherrie Henry emergency dental fund. Funds will be used ONLY for dental expenses related to the loss of a tooth. Thank you.

I recently broke a tooth and was told by my dentist I needed about $5k worth of work done (this is on top of what he had quoted me back in the spring for a complete fix of my teeth.) Due to a reduction in hours, lousy economy and crappy dental insurance (which doesn't kick in until November and will only cover the first $1000) I find myself asking for money.

I'm usually a frugal and independent person, and creating this donation profile kills me a little. I've always tried to pay my way, even back in the days where I could qualify for food stamps and food pantries, I didn't. I lived on pb&j, ramen noodles, and $0.15 cans of soup from the generic isle. Not to proud to use generics!

But at this juncture, I am desperate for relief. I can't wait for November for my insurance to kick in, even if it's going to only be $1000. I thank you in advance for your support and if you leave your name and address, I will send you a thank you card. I know it's not much, but I'd like to do something.
