This is the A renewed Smile campaign fund. The fund will be used to cover Shani's dental procedure to get permanent non removable dentures.

I am a 28 year old mother, who lost all of her teeth because of a brutal incident. It is been very embarrassing to try to talk properly and freely, smile or even laugh. I have lost weight due to not being able to eat properly, I have lost a lot of confidence and I feel ashamed. I used to be a girl that loved talk a lot, smile and laugh. I currently work with kids and a lot of the times, I hear the snickers, the laughter and the whispers behind my back. I currently wear dentures but they cause a lot of discomfort in my mouth and leave sores that last for days on end. They make my jaw hurt which causes me to not want to wear them. I have tried getting them readjusted but I still can't eat and I still end up in a lot of pain. Because of not having any teeth, it's been very difficult to obtain a job, eat, or be myself.
I am looking to raise $60,000 to get a dental procedure done called All-on-4. That procedure would allow me to have permanent non removable dental implants. I would like to be able to smile and have confidence in myself again. I would like to be able to eat the things I used to love eating. I would like to be able to laugh again and speak to people again without having to worry about being ashamed. My children look at me and always ask me questions about my teeth that make me feel embarrassed. I really need to raise funds to help change my life. I have spent the last 5 years not being able to look at myself in the mirror because of how ugly I feel. This is really important to me and your donations came help me pay for the procedure.

Any donations are greatly appreciated. I thank everyone for listening to my story
