Take A.M. who had a heart attack at the age of 50. She was working at a local grocery store. Fortunately, she had some health insurance to help with medical expenses. What she didn’t have was enough dental insurance to take care of her teeth. The heart attack caused bone loss in her upper jaw, and her teeth were beginning to abscess. She couldn’t afford the $3,700 cost for extractions, and the infections were threatening her recovery. If she couldn’t recover, she couldn’t keep her job. We applied for a grant from the A.V. Hunter Trust Foundation in Denver, which provides funds to help the working poor cover medical, dental, and vision expenses. In addition, we referred A.M. to Womenade to cover the balance of the dental bill. She received enough money to address her dental issues, and it literally saved her life. Today, A.M. is happy, healthy, and smiles a lot with her new set of dentures. And she continues to work and support herself in Durango.
