Our kids have so many obstacles to overcome! This past fall one of our youth scored higher on her GED test than any previous youth at CHMO. Catherine is bright, beautiful, and destined for great things. The only thing holding her back was a smile that’s brought her shame and ridicule all her life. Last week our Board Chairman, Paul Kindle and his dentist, Dr. Joseph Shea gave her something to smile about. Dr. Shea donated his time and over $7000 worth of dental work to help restore Catherine’s smile and confidence. When the procedure was finished and Catherine smiled for the first time, everyone in the office was overcome with emotion. She told Dr. Shea he’d changed her life and for the first time in her life she had nothing to be ashamed of.
Isn’t that what this is all about? If we could all just help change one life, imagine the possibilities… Thank you Donna, PK and Dr. Shea!

In a world seemingly filled with selfish people, it is wonderful to see there are those among us who welcome the opportunity to freely help others with their time, talent, and treasure.
