Dear friends, acquaintances, and kind-hearted individuals who come across my story,
My name is Hiury, and today I approach you with great humility and vulnerability to share one of the most significant challenges I am currently facing in my life.
At 32, I should be experiencing the prime years of my life, yet instead, I find myself at a crossroads, battling a severe dental condition that not only affects my health and well-being but also my self-esteem and the ability to smile without inhibition.
For years, I deferred necessary dental care due to financial reasons. Like many, I was caught in a web of debts that accumulated over time, whether they be educational, housing, or emergency expenses (more than 70k). The cost of living continues to rise, and prioritizing expenses has always led me to put my health on the back burner.
However, postponement is no longer an option. Dentists have warned that without extensive treatment – which includes multiple crowns, extractions, restorations, implants, and an alignment device – I could face consequences that go far beyond discomfort or aesthetics. These are risks that can affect my overall health, potentially leading to infections that impact the entire body.
The total cost of the treatment is frankly beyond my reach. $20,000 – a sum that, with the burden of the debts I already carry, is simply unattainable without help.
This is why I’m here, asking for your assistance. Any contribution, no matter the size, will help me take a step towards a healthier and happier life. Your support will mean more than just improving my dental health; it will be an investment in my ability to smile without pain, to speak without embarrassment, and to live without the constant weight of worry and discomfort.
I am immensely grateful for any support you can provide, and even for the simple action of sharing my story. Together, I hope we can turn this hope into reality and bring back the glow of a smile that has been dormant for far too long.
