Hello. My name is Regina Ullery. I have one child, a daughter, still living with me, and a son who is grown and moved out. The reason I’m here is to ask people for help with paying for my daughter’s braces, which will roughly cost around $3000-$4000. Ever since my daughter was little, she had her teeth growing in on top of the baby teeth, or behind, or to the side! This is similar to “shark teeth.” This is extremely uncomfortable for her because she often times will bite the insides of her lips and gums, many times leaving her to have to deal with not only the pain but also the sores the bites leave behind.
My daughter is one of the best people you could ever know! If she sees someone who is being bullied or just doesn’t have many or any friends, she will quickly go to them, sit with them, and try to befriend them, without a second thought to what the other kids think about it! She just turned 15 and is going to be a Sophmore next year and she has been tremendously patient about waiting for these braces that she has been told she needs ever since she was 13.
I am just not able to pay for this much of a cost at this time. I am seeking employment but not having much luck and slowly falling into more and more debt. I am also in the process of seeking out at least temporary disability because I was hit by a car a few years ago and I have been having more and more pain in my back, hip, knee, and lower leg because of this.
My hope is that I will be able to return this act of kindness to another family in need somewhere in the future. Without a doubt, I know my daughter will give back to the world in many positive ways in the future as well. She wants to help people by going into the medical field, starting with taking CNA classes while still in HS and then later possibly going for a medical degree. Her ultimate desire is to be a pediatric surgeon!
