If I could have just one wish, it would be, and has always been, to have a beautiful smile. If I could have that, it would be a life altering experience.

 I know my request here is unusual.  Especially since I am the one requesting the help for myself, but I assure you this was my last effort to try and get help.  I have tried everything I can think of to raise the funds needed for my oral surgery. 

I do have dental coverage, but none of the procedures I desperately need are covered because they are considered to be cosmetic.  I have financed thousands of dollars to pay for the work I've had done, and now I need to get bone graphs for dental implants among other things that are so very costly.  It is urgent because my bone/gum line is receeding.  Soon my mouth won't be able to support the implant.

I can't explain why, but I need to do this for myself.  And I need to do it now.  This would change my life in so many ways. I need to get my confidence back, I recently lost it, and  my inner strength, but I need to get it back.  I have never been able to smile and right now I really need to.  I would do anything to make this dream come true.  It's awful to always be self conscious of every word that comes out of your mouth.  I would donate my kidney for a chance to have a beautiful smile.

I did manage to give my daughter a gorgeous smile with her braces, especially since I remember how awful it was to be teased as a kid.  I didn't want her to go through that. 

So, that is why I am reaching out.  Because I have done, and will continue to do everything possible to make this happen.  I am very independent and don't like to ask for help, so please know that I am humbled in doing so.

If you can help, I promise that I will someday return the favor if needed. I will do whatever I can...honest! I recently learned to let people help you... because they might ask you for help one day.

This journey has opened my eyes to alot of different things.  I found out that I am not the only one who is frustrated, in need, and have no resources.  So, I have made it my goal to create oppurtunities for people with the same issue.  Raise awareness, raise funds, and change the way we help eachother. 

So thank you for taking the time to read and maybe help me.  If I could change someones life for the better, I would love it.  How can I help any of you?
