ANN'S STORY

Ann Thomas

Ann was terrified of dentists – and hadn’t been to one for nearly 40 years. Living alone in constant pain, she’d given up.

That’s when Chris, a Red Cross support worker, began visiting weekly to build up her confidence and independence. Within 12 weeks, Ann was back in the dentist’s chair.

If my doctor hadn’t put the Red Cross in my life, I honestly don’t know where I’d be today
