A Personal Story: There Is No Extra $ – Helen, Royalton

there-is-no-extra

Helen lives in Royalton, Vermont. This is her story:

I woke up this morning with what felt like I had a golf ball in my mouth.  I know it is abscessed and infected and I know I cannot afford to get half the work done so why bother doing anything.  I know I will need a root canal and a crown because this has happened before.  The most I have saved is $600 that is not even half the cost of the root canal.  I own my own business.  Times are tight, business is slow.  There is no extra money.
