Caridad Center is grateful and indebted to all former and current military personnel for their service. For the past several years, Caridad has provided various dental services to our nation’s veterans. Recently, our Dental Clinic helped a Korean War Veteran named Sheldon Evans.
Sheldon who resides in Delray Beach served in the U.S. Army and fought in the Korean War. Unfortunately, he was experiencing severe discomfort with his teeth, which made it very difficult to eat. He lost over 40 lbs and became very weak from lack of nourishment. The Veterans Administration recommend that Sheldon visit Caridad Center. Thanks to the work of our volunteer Dentist Dr. Fernando and our dental staff we were able to provide Sheldon new dentures. Now Sheldon is without pain, eating regularly, and has already gained back 15 lbs.
Sheldon Evans said, “I thought Caridad was wonderful and treated me great. I don’t know what I would have done without Caridad Center.”
Caridad is pleased to continue its tradition of serving veterans like Sheldon. You can help us continue providing critical aid to patients such as Sheldon. Happy Veterans Day to all who served, and thank you to all of our donors for their continued support.
