Helping Gene Smile Again

My name is Gene and I’m asking your help enabling me to smile again. I need to have all of my teeth pulled (16 teeth left at this point), and I’ll need dentures. This to be done in stages (over the next few months), as I have underlying health issues, a fixed income, and no dental insurance. (If I can meet my fund goal early and my health can tolerate it, the extractions might can be done quicker.) Since I was a child, I’ve had terrible teeth: My paternal ancestry had poor teeth, and my childhood reaction to Tetracycline damaged my teeth further. I’ve always been conscious of my terrible teeth, hiding them during speaking and concealing them during laughter. Now, this has become life threatening because all the enamel is gone, and my teeth have intense sensitivity, and are becoming infected. My dentist will let me pay as I go, but the total cost as of now is $9930.00. I’m asking that you consider donating $5.00 to my fund (plus from $0-$1.00 for GoFundMe tip), AND that you personally ask three friends who you know, who are most likely to donate at least the above amount, and that they each ask three friends, and so on—This insures the donations are ongoing. Thank you for your assistance and for sharing. Once the financial goal is met, I will remove this profile. Bright Blessings!
