Joseph's Dental Work And Relocation

Hello, I'm Joseph Machise, and here is my story.
On a cold March morning in 1947 I came into this world.  By the time I was 13 years old, my troubled family broke up, and I had spent most of my life shipped away to Blind schools.
Since that time, I have always been alone, and with a learning disability, I have never been able to adequately prepare for retirement, and now I live alone in a humble apartment in need of assistance with dental medical work, in that I need an implant and a bone graft and a crown. One tooth has already been removed.  These costs come to $6,100.00, and Medicaid does not cover these costs.
I have nobody for family in this time of need and I have developed friendships around the country from communications and I would like to relocate to another part of the country where I know folks, and mobility will be easier for me.  So I hope you are able to assist me with my medical assistance, and to help me start a new life.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
