The family and friends of Chaitanya Nolan are uniting to raise money for her vital jaw surgery. Please lend your support!

My mother, Chaitanya Nolan, has had a very weak jaw her whole life. She recently saw a specialist (due to increasing difficulty eating) and was told the bone that fits into the jaw socket never grew to proper adult size. The DMD/Orofacial Surgeon was amazed by how tiny it was, and that my mother has been able to manage with it all these years.

After decades of use, this deformity had begun to cause MAJOR issues--my mother could barely chew because the top and bottom jaws/rows of teeth no longer touched. Her diagnosis: bilateral avascular necrosis of mandibular condyles... the discs within the TMJs (her jaw) were deteriorating. The Orofacial surgeon recommended surgery right away.

Mom had surgery Jan 05, 2012 to replace the destroyed discs, so that her jaws will function properly in the future (after months of healing & physical therapy.) Specialty surgery such as this is very expensive, and not covered under many insurance policies. We ask for a small donation of support from you to assist in paying these bills down.

Thank you.

We are blessed to have family & friends like you!
