How to fix a smile...

The project I have undergone is simple to understand. I have a broken smile. What does this mean? It means I have lived my life with a cleft lip and pallet. I have the opportunity to finish the surgeries which are necessary to improve general quality of life. I have to have the rest of the bad teeth removed and implants put in. No one realizes how important a smile is. It tells someone you meet for the first time who you are on the inside. My smile doesn't do that at this moment. You can't find a decent job because you are judged with how you look. People turn away someone who has a lot to give just because it looks to others that I cannot take care of myself or that I don't care about my health. I do care, I am one of the most giving and caring people I know, I never turn away others who need help. This is one of the first times I have had the courage to say, " Someone please help me!" I got very lucky an found a wonderful group of surgeons and most have greatly reduced their fees, but there are still fees. They tell me they need at least something so that when other more life threatening cases come in they can help them. I humbly ask for anything anyone wishes to share with me. Thank you all for listening and learning a bit more about me and above all thank you for helping me fix a broken smile. All funds will go towards the payment of all the bills and the medications and therapies that may be needed.
