Well, as we all know- there is a SEVERE lack of medical, dental , and ALL resources for single Mothers and their Children.

If anyone is in Il and has ANY info or suggestions, Id looove to hear!

I do work, a lot. over the years Ive worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to give my kids the necessities.

Although, once again without any form of 'health insurace', and unable to receive any sort of state or federal assistance, I cannot locateb ANYONE anywhere even semi- affordable for many medical services, more-so for dental. My son startys high school this fall (actually this summer)... there is no financial naid for the $500.oo summer school program, and it is required he has a full medical & dental exam prior to starting. they will not let him attend high school at all without it.

The health dept I used ton work at is far overbooked and will only see 'pediatric' for a slidingn scvazle fee. As my son will be 14 in a few weeks- they wont see him there.

I'd think theyd be grants or something, as last6 year when I went through a year of chemo- I recieved a few grants from the womkens cancer society (and yet still over over 60 grand tgo hospital & physcians)... does anyone know of ANY pre teen & teewn programs, resouces, or grants, etc? Ive searched high and low. I hoped perhaps this networking- someone may have an idea or know of something.

Have a great week!!!
