A Smile for Saundra is a fundraiser to help combat some of the medical costs an amazing woman named Saundra Cole has encountered.

For the past three years Saundra has been fighting the mono virus. It has overtaken her entire body and has even seeped into her spine causing her great discomfort physically as well as the mental toll of dealing with all of her symptoms. Over the years, Saundra has been in and out of the hospital, dealt with fatigue and pain that medication rarely touches and has had to deal with physical changes that most people would feel devastated about. Saundra has lost all of her hair, which she has been told will never grow back; she has no eyebrows, eyelashes, or hair to brush. She experiences major migraines on a regular basis, sometimes so deteriorating that she cannot even get out of bed. And most days she deals with the constent struggle of fatigue and exhaustion.

Saundra has been on many different types of medication ranging in different doses and strengths, but none of it will help to cure her of this disease only to help ease her of the symptoms. Many times the medications make her physical condition worse forcing her to make a decision whether to relieve the pain and deal with more physical deterioration or worse take the pain head on. Recently, as a result of this disease and the combination of medication, Saundra has had to have the majority of her teeth pulled and had to go through the process of being fitted for dentures which she has taken all in stride.

Although Saundra has had to deal with all of these major physical issues she has never lost her spirit or her ability to smile. Every day she manages to smile and laugh and makes sure that everyone around her does the same. She is a selfless individual who would give you the shirt off of her back and would bend over backwards to make your life a little better. She never complains and she is always worried about the people around her more than her own self. She is a wonderful mother of three great kids, and a grandmother to an adorable 18 month old little girl.

Even with insurance Saundra has still incurred great expenses, her dental work alone has cost her well over $7000.00. All we want to is to help ease Saundra’s medical struggles a little so she can focus on what she needs to, Smiling, rather then how she is going to pay her medical bills.
