The friends and family of Ryan Fitzpatrick are rallying to raise money so that Ryan can have new dentures made by the U of W dental school.

My husband of 22 years...his name is Ryan, had to have all of his teeth extracted within the past three weeks, because they had been deteriorating and were making him sick. On top of that, he has pulmonary fibrosis, due to an accident he was in back in 1988. He is such a kind and gentle man/husband/father and has never asked for anything extravagant....come to think of it..all he has ever done is be an excellent father, husband and provider...sometimes working two or more jobs to make ends meet. He has been unable to work for the past two years, and actually has been declared "disabled" and now we are living on about a fourth of the income that he once earned as a very talented carpenter/cabinetmaker/boatbuilder. We have been to the University of Washington Dental School and have a tentative date of November to have a new set of dentures made for Ryan. The total cost is approximately $8,000.00 if they do 3 or 4 lower jaw secure the lower plate(due to bone loss in his jaw). We do have some dental insurance, but the University dental school requires 50% up front and the remaining balance paid within 5 weeks of the completion of his new dentures. Please help me give my dear husband back his dignity and put that mischievous, fun loving smile back on his face. Thank you and God bless you.
