Grandpa's Teeth

My Grandpa is one of the most selfless people I know. He’s spent his life taking care of the people around him. Now he needs our help, and I’m hoping we can improve his situation.

He worked as an iron worker for over 50 years, but had to retire early and forfeit a large part of his pension due to a career ending injury. He’s been living with crumbling teeth for years now, and it has been difficult to watch him struggle to eat. He would never say so himself, but I know it really has a negative impact on his quality of life.

He was visiting recently when he lost his front tooth. He tried to hide his disappointment, but we could see the sadness in his eyes. I believe that he has earned the right to savor his food during these late years, but I don’t have the resources to make that happen.

Grandpa Ron deserves to enjoy his meals without pain or limitations. We are reaching out for help, and I know that your generosity will go a long way in bringing happiness into this great man’s life.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. My family appreciates your consideration.
