Manuela's Story

When Manuela arrived at the Tomball Regional Health Foundation Dental Clinic at TOMAGWA, in October 2019, she had only 6 teeth on top, and they all had large cavities. Manuela was 58 years old, had only been to the dentist to remove teeth, and never had a dental cleaning. In January 2020 the dental team started Manuela’s transformation, as the pandemic began to emerge in the United States. Manuela’s remaining top teeth had to be pulled, due to the large cavities. Then, as her upper denture was being made, the Dental Clinic had to temporarily pull back, only focusing on emergencies, due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus.

It seemed that once again, Manuela’s dream may have been put on an indefinite hold. However, once the Dental Clinic received clearance from the state Governor’s office to treat patients, refitted its internal systems for safety, and returned to its normal patient volumes, completing Manuela’s case was a priority.

Prior to the care she received from TOMAGWA, Manuela hated to smile, and had a hard time finding a job. Since receiving her upper denture, Manuela has a new job and brightens the world with a smile that she loves!

Thanks to supporters like you, patients like Manuela can smile with confidence!

David's Story

“It’s a blessing to receive help from TOMAGWA. What they do for families is amazing.” - Lisa, TOMAGWA patient David’s mom.
7-year-old David was born with a birth defect in his feet called strabismus or commonly known as drop foot. Confined to a wheelchair his whole life, he had never visited a doctor before. After recently moving to the U.S, his teachers at Tomball ISD noticed his condition and referred him to TOMAGWA with high hopes that we could help. His family was uninsured and without transportation to take him for a checkup. Our team stepped in right away providing transportation service and a detailed assessment. At TOMAGWA, he received free x-rays due to our partnership with Elite Diagnostics and is now able to receive the physical therapy he needs. We're so grateful for our family of supporters, who are united in our purpose: providing quality, affordable healthcare to those in need.

Aaron's Story

Aaron, who had recently become uninsured, was referred to TOMAGWA through a friend. He came to his first visit with symptoms of hypertension, high cholesterol, and severe abdominal pain. Our nursing team immediately sprang into action providing a thorough assessment.
Because of the severity of his symptoms our team called EMS to transport the patient to Houston Methodist Willowbrook hospital where he received six hernia repairs. Due to these lifesaving surgeries, Aaron is now gainfully employed, insured, and thriving in his new position.
