This is a fund created to help Storm smile again. He is battling advanced periodontal disease caused from complications with Diabetes.

Nothing would bring me more joy than to put a smile on my fiance Storm's face.

I hope to be able to raise enough money to give my Storm the ability to smile again. He is so saddened by his predicament. I appreciate anything that can be donated for his cause. I keep praying for God to open a window where all of the doors have been shut. I would be eternally grateful if I could just give a smile back to him.

Storm is 34 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of eleven. He lost his mother to Congestive Heart Failure at a very young age. He is a loving and generous man and I want to see him smile again. Storm loves animals and always has room in his heart to share a hug with one of the animal friends who share in our lives.

I never see my Storm smile anymore. He suffers from advanced periodontal disease which has destroyed his
once near perfect grin. After never having even one cavity, complications from Type 1 Diabetes has caused his gums to become diseased and ravaged his smile. The pain from infected gums is agonizing and his teeth are falling out one by one. I know that if I have a toothache, the pain is pounding and awful. I cannot imagine what he feels like. He can no longer eat. I have to cut up his food and even then, it is difficult for him to chew without a great deal of pain. We do not have dental insurance to provide the care that Storm so greatly needs. His health insurance will not cover the dental treatments necessary to end his suffering. We simply do not have the funds to pay for the amount of dental work required. The tragic part of Storm's story is that each day that passes, the periodontal disease causes further damage to his already compromised kidneys. His kidneys are operating at only 25% of normal and each drop in kidney function can jeopardize his life.

After several consultations with dentists, the final plan was laid out for us. These are estimates based
upon examination. Since his teeth are so fragile, the plan is subject to change.

Digital Xrays: $450

Extractions: $2000 - $2500

Scaling and gum treatment: $1200

Deep periodontal cleaning: $1000

Partial Dentures/Bridgework: $4000

Thank you.
