We are raising funds to assist our veteran KFF volunteer and beloved Frank Hill with his dental needs. He must have all 15 teeth/roots extracted and a set of dentures so that he can eat with ease and have more "Energy". He has been to multiple appointments to see an oral surgeon as well as a dentist; both have made this recommendation.
The cost is estimated at $6,000 and Frank has received a grant from MusiCares for $2,000. We were connected to them through HAAM who has been incredibly generous in assisting Frank with his custom hearing aids, along with Estes Audiology.
But wait, there's more! We are throwing a shindig for this benefit as well. To show his appreciation, Frank will be playing a set with Christopher Yarrow here in South Austin! Here are the details:
