Why I'm using HandUp for a root canal.

My endodontist informed me that I am in need of a root canal. It costs around $1800 and would really support me in improving my oral health. I'm in severe pain and this root canal would enable me to live pain free.

About me.

I was born in the Bronx and I lived in New Jersey as a young child. When I was about 8 years old, my parents moved to San Bruno. I've lived in San Francisco since 1979. I worked for a janitor for 17 years. I'm blind in one eye, am disabled, and have seizures.

My backstory.

I have Marfan's Syndrome which causes me a lot pain. A lot of days I don't have the strength to get out of bed. I have seizures and everything hurts me all the time. I'm blind in my right eye and have rheumatoid athritis. I can't work. I'm using HandUp to get this root canal to fix my teeth and get me out of pain.

My goals, moving forward.

I'd like to get my health back.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

My happiest moment was when I married my wife at the Missionaries of Charity Chapel. It was very happy--I was in better shape too! ; )
