Rebuilding a Beautiful Smile

Shy’ane regained her smile and confidence after receiving funding for dental reconstruction and orthodontia from First Hand. She had a rare bone disorder that led to the removal of her lower jaw.

“We went from a very normal life to chaos really quickly. First Hand stepped in and is helping us through this situation." Shy’Ane’s Dad

Conquering Challenges

Doctors told Cayden’s family that he had only a small chance of returning to his normal activity level after a severe spinal cord injury left him paralyzed. The 17-year-old, through intense physical therapy partially funded by First Hand, far surpassed that outlook. He has returned to school, passed his driver’s license and remains a positive inspiration to everyone he meets.

“[Case grand funding] just lets you focus on your kid. It lets you focus on their recovery instead of worrying.” Tracy, Cayden’s Mom
