The family and friends of Barbara Boehler are asking that you please show your support. Please help this outstanding lady.

Since the 80's, I've survived ovarian and breast cancer; each diagnosed 10 years apart. In between, while being free of cancer, I underwent 4 major operations on my lower jaw. My bone had deteriorated and I had to have a bone and metal implant. My body rejected the first implant, and it was taken out in 4 pieces. I had to wait for one year b efore i could have another implant. It took 2 surgeries for each implant. My last implant lasted 19 years, then it started working through my bone. That meant another operation to remove the implant. Because of the previous surgeries, I had nerve damage on the side of my mouth. I had to wait one year before I could try again. Each implant was a different kind. I had another bone graft, implant, and new dentures. It's been 10 years and the implant is doing great; however, I need a bone implant on my upper jaw desperately. I have pain in the bone constantly, especially when I eat. I have prayed so hard and so long for a way to pay for these last surgeries. From all the prior bills, I am broke with no way to pay this time. Two years ago was diagnosed with chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. The doctors have told me it was a slow growing cancer and I might outlive it. I'm a fighter. I've had to be, but now I'm at the end of my rope. I'm hoping and praying someone will help. I've never asked for help before. I'm a proud woman, but I'm now pushing my pride aside. Will someone please help me? The bone graft, metal implants, and special dentures cost $10,000.
Thank you and God Bless,
Barbara Boehler
