Family trying to raise money for mother for out of pocket medical expenses due to dental trauma and related conditon.

My mother has been struggling for the past 4 years after a severe dental trauma involving nerve damage to her gums/teeth (atypical trigeminal nerve damage). She had lost 4 teeth 3 years ago and 1 tooth recently because of this and suffers from a constant burning sensation in her mouth, tongue, neck and side of face due to the damage. She has been seeing pain specialists since this happened to her and needs to take medication for the nerve damage. From not being able to chew well and having to stick to a soft diet she developed diverticulitis and has been hospitalized twice for this in the past year and a half. She will need abdominal surgery in the future should she have another episode. She also has diabetes and the stress from this condition has affected her. She has been seeking medical assistance from various dentists, and many will not help her due to the damage and her needs. She needs a specialist who helps people with her condition and they are expensive. My mother's insurance does not cover all the procedures she needs done, which will be touch and go due to her condition, and family cannot afford out of pocket expenses. Medical bills have been extensive and she needs help trying to pay them as well. She is unable to work full time with the pain. My mother was very energenic and pain free before this trauma occurred. We would like to have her regain her health back to the best of her ability with treatment. Any donations will be much appreciated.
