Dental clinic closure may hit some in the area like ton of bricks


WILLMAR -- For the last 14 years, Robert Enos has been the primary caregiver for his 54-year-old brother, Michael.

He took over the full-time care for Michael after their mother died.

With multiple health problems stemming from a genetic disease called tuberous sclerosis that resulted in surgery for a brain tumor when he was 11, Michael is developmentally disabled, partially paralyzed and has frequent seizures.
