A dear friend with no teeth needs full mouth dental implants. She's had a very tough life and deserves her self esteem back. Thank you

Thank you so much for reading.

In 1990, my senior year of high school, I met an amazing woman by the name of Shaleen. We clicked instantly. Well, when I met her I was only able to date her for a couple short months because she was in and out of the hospital at dangerously low body weight. It wasn't until after I stopped seeing her that she was diagnosed with Addison's Disease.

I lost touch with Shaleen within a year and many years later tried to find her again. I was unable to find her for 20 years until just a couple months ago. Turns out Shaleen had been searching for me too. We were elated to find each other. Unfortunately Shaleen had been through a VERY rough life in that time. She still battles Addisons, has lost her job, and had been in a very controlling and abusive relationship for the last 10 years.

At 26 years old, Shaleen lost all her teeth due to her disease. She was given dentures but her self esteem plummeted and she was never the same. Just before I reunited with her I found out her ex has taken and destroyed her dentures out of meanness and spite for her leaving him. She now is virtually embarrassed to even get to know me again.

I can't let this be and I want to get Shaleen full mouth dental implants. They are very expensive but I believe in helping this woman who I care about so deeply pull out of this slump and start a new life with a new beautiful smile. I'm moving her from the area she lives in to my area to help her get a new job and start anew but I can't afford to get her the dental work to restore her smile.

Please help me to give Shaleen a fresh start and to restore her crushed self esteem. I am personally accepting fund on Shaleens behalf and will be paying the surgeon directly. Thank you sooo much for any help you can give toward this goal.
