FIMRC has developed fundraising efforts to support a single mother and her four children with vital dental treatments.
In April 2017, a single mother, Claudia, with four young children came to see Dr. Karen Wedel. Claudia was looking to relieve her son’s pain from his broken molar, but does not have insurance to cover the costs. Dr. Karen noticed that all the kids had major dental problems, and recommended the family to her friend, a pediatric dentist, who extracted and cleaned the children's teeth at no cost. Despite her work, there are still many problems that could not be addressed due to their higher cost. Each child needs multiple cavities filled, and two of them require root canals and prosthetic teeth. Donating to this project will directly impact the lives of these children.
