A Smile for Malea
For those of you who know me I have a very contagious smile......it's a closed mouth smile or my eyes will smile at you......I have very bad teeth!! NONE of you may know this about me. I am a master at concealing my flaws. My oral health has been deteriorating rapidly for the past 8 years. I have a very unique bone in the pallet of my mouth that is called a Tori that needs to be removed in order for me to achieve my oral health needs I met with an oral facial surgeon yesterday and all of this is possible but it is going to be an expense that I currently can't absorb. I don't typically seek outside help due to my pride but I am going to push my pride aside and ask for assistance in any way I can. Mouth pain is brutal and I would like to be rid of the abscesses and the poison from my teeth. I have a date set for my surgery it may have to be pushed back a couple of times due to the lack of my ability to pay but I really need this!!! As I left the doctors office yesterday I made the comment I can't wait to be pain free and have a beautiful smile AGAIN. I was paid the best compliment I've heard in awhile..... Dr Davis told me "Malea you still have a beautiful smile" and he doesn't know me at all!!! In a superficial world and where we are constantly told what we like to hear versus what we need to hear, that made my heart smile. My oral health is the concern not my smile :) thanks in advance for ANYONE that may be able to help!!!+ Read More
I wanted to be sure to thank all my friends and family that have took the time to share my gofund me page....my appreciation is beyond words......i didn't post the actual cost of my surgery initially but I think it's important that you all know the cost is $6000. I'm almost there...... with Abbeys broken thumb at the beginning of the summer it kinda put me in a little bit of a financial hardship as you and can probably relate even with kick butt health coverage and an HSA 10,000 is a huge whack even if you aren't able to help please continue to share I know there are several of my friend's and family out there that need help way far more than I and I completely understand charity begins at home first...... love you all so VERY much.
