For six years, my doctor's have written letters which I have sent out because I am a senior citizen who needs her teeth extracted in order to prevent an infection that could kill me. I had a widow-maker heart attack which left my heart % at 28%, have diabetes, have heart arrythmia, am disabled and am a 7 year cancer survivor. For six years, I have been pleading to have my teeth fixed, pulled or whatever the dental people thought was needed to save my life. I had a Dr, Neal, of Crystal Lake Dental Associates tell me that he would fix my teeth approx. two years ago. He did x-rays, introduced me to his wonderful staff and in two years he did x-rays and pulled a tooth. We have no money and are in the McHenry Co Dental and housing spenddown, but we have asked for dental help because Dr. Neal, who does charitable volunteer work in Central America, changed his mind to help me. I have written several letters and have called but no one returns my letters or calls as to the reason he changed his mind to help me. I cannot drive more than two hours because of my heart condition. I was so happy this christain dentist (which he said he was and his office staff told me he was said he would fix my teeth. Then change his mind?? Why? I am going to die if I get an infection that reaches my heart. After Dr. Neal, taking so long to do the work,, then changing his mind, I was told at a free clinic that I now needed all the teeth (I think 21) in my mouth now pulled and get dentures, My teeth are black and white, decayed, broken, chipped, my gums are bleeding and my mouth hurts and gums hurt all of the time. I guess being a diabetic and on so much medicine has destroyed my teeth as I never had a cavity until I was almost thirty years old. One government agency told me, you should have never worked, and you could get a medicaid card if you didn't and get what people who never worked for in their life get. I worked! Now I need help, we cannot afford to pay for dental work and after all we have been through because of illness, we lost our house and now I am going to die??? Prisoner's get fed in jail and housed after killing and breaking the law so why cannot I get my teeth pulled to save my life? Please tell me if any volunteer dentists are within two hours of Crystal Lake will help me or where else I can look! I have filed with different places but cannot get help. Heard a free clinic in or around Harvard or Woodstock closed last year!? Can someone not help me?? Doctor's, dentist's, and. free clinic's have all told me that all it takes is one infection that reaches my heart from my rotten teeth could kill me or severely damage my heart! We get most of our food from mobile food pantries. I have lost 150 lbs and if I get an infection, or my teeth hurt more, I will lose more. I was told I would have been better off if we never worked at all and we are paying for people from other countries we let come in and now there is no money for us senior's, disabled, who were born here, worked here and payed our contribution's here. Is there any help out there for me?? My husband's anxiety level if very high because he is afraid he will lose me. Send me any information to Joy Schneiderwind, 219 Uteg Street, Apt. C, Crystal Lake, Illinois 60014. Thank you! I cannot tell you the last time I slept at night!
