Dentist's selfless act helps transplant patient

There is a great hero living among us. In order for me to live, I needed to be put on the organ transplant list. The transplant team informed me that I needed to have extensive dental work done before I could be added to the transplant list.

The cost of that dental work would have been tens of thousands of dollars, which I couldn't afford. Dr. Neal Richter, of Richter Dental, and his staff donated their time and skills to help me get on the transplant list and take back control of my life.

There are no words to describe how grateful I am for what they all did for me. He is a very humble and gifted dentist, and it has been an honor to be one of his patients.

Christopher Washington, Hammond
