Please help me raise money for my sisters Dental Needs!

I have started this website in hopes that you might be able to help my sister.  My sister is a recovering addict.   I am very proud of my sisters sobriety for the past 13 months.  Jennifer has found faith in God and she has become a teacher for him!  Those of you that know her see the inspiring comments on Facebook!  She touches people thoughts every day! My sister was an excellent Student during her years at Knox City High School. 

  She graduated in 1991 and went to nursing school.  She has a gift of taking care of people and was very successful for awhile until she began to take pain pills.  Addiction to pain pills is a trap that many people fall back on to deaden the pain from something they feel that is going on in their life.   None of us are perfect.  God did not make us that way.  My stepmother was also very sick for many years with severe Lupos and her Diabetes.   She suffered many difficult days in pain.   Jennifer was there and took care of her.  Jennifer began to do things that she is very ashamed of but has been forgiven.   She  would eat the Fentanyl patches and it began to ruin her teeth.  My sister needs to have extensive dental work.  The teeth that Jennifer has left are broken to the gum and she lives with daily pain.  I have helped her get four of the teeth surgically removed.  They were causing enfection in her sinuses and the pain was unbearable not to speak of the danger to her health.  Even during the healing process she did not once take a pain pill. Jennifer has not complained once about not having her front top teeth.   I have seen my sister become a whole person and I just want to help her.

 This is hard for me to write this request because I have to talk about My sisters life but I want to see Jennifer's beautiful smile again and I can't do it alone.  

Jennifer and I have faith in God that it will happen one day but I so want to help her get this done in 2012.    Jennifer has been in recovery for 13 months now and has showed that she can remain sober.  Jennifer is a trust worthy individual, responsible, with a heart of Gold!  Help me help her be able to smile!
