Hello, Rem here this time. After thinking about it for a while, I've decided to end the donations and get my molar extracted instead of getting a root canal, which will save me $2000. I have just withdrawn the money and will start making dentist appointments as soon as possible, and I will be updating as I go!

I can't thank you all enough for your help, I really don't know how I would've done this without you. There's just no way I can think of that is a sufficient way to say thank you, the amount of generosity I've been shown is incredible. I plan to pay it forward, every cent, no matter how long it takes.

Thank you to everyone who helped, either by donating or signal boosting or just sharing some kind words. It all helped so much, thank you!

We are a little over 50% of our goal now! Thank you to everyone who has donated, posted this on their social media websites, and even to those who care about Rem but do not have the funds necessary to donate. You are all so amazing, and every dollar is so appreciated!

I am making this page for a good friend of mine who is always generous with everything that she has, though that is not much. She has had severe tooth pain for a year now and has been taking Ibuprofen every day since November, which is extremely dangerous for her liver and only helps a little bit, but the pain is too severe for her to handle without it. Well, she finally found a low cost dentist who would give her an exam for cheap so she could find out everything that was wrong and get an estimate of the cost.


When she walked out of the dentist's office with the verdict and the estimated cost, which was over $4,000, she sobbed uncontrollably. She found out that she has two severe infections, a root canal that is so extreme it will require small gum surgery to remove some of her gums, four of her wisdom teeth need to be extracted and one will require surgery to dig it out of the bone, she needs six cavities filled, and she needs a deep cleaning that will require them to numb her entire mouth because her pain levels are so high.


The total that she was given is over $4,000, and that does NOT include the medicine that she needs to cure the infection, the numbing, or the pain medication that she will need afterwards.


Rem works a minimum wage job and $4,000 is half of what she makes in a year. She has no health insurance and even low income and sliding scale dentists can not make her dental work affordable.


Looking at her smile you wouldn't think that anything is wrong. Knowing her and how generous she is with everything that she has, you wouldn't believe that she needs someone to take the time out to be generous to her. She touches the lives of people who meet her, she truly does.


So please, please. Anything that you have, even if it is just a dollar, WILL make a difference! She is even applying for credit cards (although getting rejected due to not having enough credit history) and facing major debt because she cannot take the pain any longer.


ALL of the money raised will go directly to paying for these bills. She can post bills, receipts, and photos as she goes through the process of fixing her teeth.

Way back in the day, I used to frequent a rather silly, girl-oriented internet forum. I looked up to you then, and I truly believe you’ve been one of the best role models of my life, teaching me love and acceptance, but also that anger and action is sometimes warranted. Just by your influence, just by living your life the way you do and saying the things you do, you made me into a better person, and for that I am extremely grateful. I never knew you well enough to tell you all this, but I hope your life goes well, because I know very few people who deserve that as much as you. Thank you for everything, and I hope this admirer-from-afar thing doesn't sound as creepy as I fear it might!
