Dentry's Surgery

This fund is created to raise money in support of Dentry Mortimer. Dentry requires immediate surgery for the reoccurrence of a virus in his throat that created potentially fatal tumors.

Unfortunately, Dentry was diagnosed with this throat virus four years ago and his
surgery was deemed a success until he was re-diagnosed earlier this year. Now, he has
two tumors that require immediate removal. This time Dentry needs our help, as he does not have health insurance coverage in the US, where the surgery will take place. This time we have secured a specialized doctor with a high success rate in this

Dentry who is now 35 years old, has been a long time player, coach, and advocate of tennis. He has represented the Bahamas Davis Cup team as both a player and a coach. Currently, he’s coaching promising young tennis champions. I, Roger Smith, have known Dentry since he was 14 years old. I’ve not only coached Dentry but have also taken him in as a son. It hurts me that I cannot take on the total cost myself, but I’m thankful for platforms like this to
gather additional support. Please join me in support of Dentry to raise $7,000 to pay for his surgery and all
required medical expenses. It is my goal to get Dentry healed so that he can continue to make a positive impact on society by developing and mentoring numerous kids.

Much Appreciated,

Roger Smith
