You’ve heard the saying, A smile is worth a thousand words. Sometimes it seems like its worth much more. Your smile has the power to light up a room and to connect with people without saying a single word. Hospice Angels learned just how powerful a smile can be when we approved a humble request from a hospice patient that read Please help me to smile again. The young father, already burdened with deep debt from his illness, was simply unable to afford the dentures he so desperately needed. Turned away by every other resource, he turned to Hospice Angels who connected him with a local dentist. Touched by his story, the dentist donated his time and Hospice Angels picked up the rest. Today, this wonderful man is truly smiling again living his days with the dignity, hope, and happiness he so richly deserves.
