Why I'm using HandUp for partial dentures.

I'm working with a dentist to get partial dentures. They cost $100. I went into the dental office and they have already fitted the dentures on me and they look beautiful. I am in need of $100 that my MediCal doesn't cover and would greatly appreciate getting these dentures to support me with my employment and recovery. Dentures would give me the confidence I would need to move forward with interviewing for employment and staying sober.

About me.

My name is Cecil. I was born in Santa Rosa and lived in Sacramento for many years, Redding California, and have lived here in the city for 3 and 1/2 years. I have driven for Uber and have worked in SFO, but have experienced homelessness because of the cost of housing and it makes it very difficult to hold a job because living in shelters and on the street have put a hardship on keeping employment. So I am currently trying to rebuild my life. I don't know if I can live in the city forever because of the cost of living in the city. So I would appreciate any help to better myself. Thank you very much.

My backstory.

I had a hard upbringing because of the challenge I face with my family. Divorce in the family. I have lived around alcoholism all my life and have found myself falling into that category. So I am just trying to better myself so I can live a better life. There has been abuse, by a few family members and step-parents. So it's been hard to focus on what I need to do. It has been a challenge because I have recently discovered I have arthritis in my hip.

My goals, moving forward.

My goals need to be one at a time. I have to be patient even though I am 51 years old. I would like to drive once again to earn a living. I would like to sometime in my life own my own home. That is a large goal though that I can not achieve until I reach my small goals. A job, which would help create stability. Stability, not just with having a job but with me as a person. I need a better support system in my life because it has never been there. But I think a job would create a sense of stability would start on my small goals before I can reach any large goal.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

I think that this is a great program for someone to help another person. It shows that there is people willing to support another person, even without knowing that person. So I do appreciate people that are willing to help.
