End Chad's dental pain nightmare!

Imagine the pain from a tooth that needs to be pulled. That terrible throbbing pain. How about two teeth hurting at the same time? Chad has not only two teeth that must be pulled as soon as possible, but he has at least another seven waiting to be next. He has so much pain that he sometimes can't tell which tooth it's coming from. He can't sleep, eat, or work.

Nothing is worse than seeing someone you love suffer in pain. That's why I've started this campaign. I am desperate to get Chad out of pain as soon as possible. I'm afraid he's going to have complications from these bad teeth, such as endocarditis.

  Tooth pain is one of the worst types of pain to have, but it isn't just about the physical pain. There's a lot of emotional and psychological pain associated with having poor teeth. The smile is often times the first thing you notice about a person. Teeth are visible when you talk, laugh, and smile, even if you try to hide them. Chad has been hiding his smile for a long time.

Dental problems arise from various causes, but in Chad's case it came from overuse of antibiotics when he was a child. Chad was sick as a child with many acute illnesses and some chronic conditions. At that time physicians gave antibiotics for everything. With a poor genetic background when it comes to his teeth and the use of so many antibiotics, Chad's teeth became vulnerable to decay.

Chad doesn't have health insurance and hasn't had any since he was under his dad's plan years ago. Healthcare is expensive, as we all know. Kylie makes too much money to qualify them for help, but not enough to pay for massive dental work. Chad has a job offer as a bartender, but he can't take the job until some of this pain is relieved.

Right now Chad needs at least two teeth extracted. He has an appointment for that on Tuesday, June 13th. After that there will be more extractions, possibly as many as another seven teeth that are beyond repair. Then the hope will be to save his remaining teeth.

Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated. Chad never asks anyone for help. He's usually the person offering help to others. Please help me bring some relief to him.
