Monthly Donation - Mike Teller
Each month Stubbs Dental donates the proceeds of all new patient exams to a deserving member or organization of our community. January's recipient is Mike Teller.
In 2014 Mike Teller and his family suffered from a heartbreaking loss. Their young daughter, Mariah, passed away from a rare DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) brain tumor. This childhood tumor is aggressive and devastating. Three months later the family found out that Mike had been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia.
Mike will have to continue chemotherapy for the rest of his life and he travels to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Phoenix, AZ every three months for additional treatment.
Mike and his wife, Terra, are also loving foster parents. Even through their hard times they share their strength and love with others.
Stubbs Dental was able to donate $2,730 to help Mike with medical and travel expenses. If you are interested in reading Mike's full story or donating to his cause please visit his Go Fund Me page.
So remember, when you become a patient at Stubbs Dental not only are you helping yourself by taking care of your teeth, you are helping a deserving member of your local community! If you would like to nominate someone to receive the Stubbs Dental donation please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
