Help Fix Susan's Smile

My dear friend Susan of 16 years was one of the first sisters I met after we both were new Muslims. She is one of those ladies that opens her heart and home to anyone who has a need. She puts enormous energy and effort when she sees someone with a struggle. She has gone through her own personal struggles, but always kept a smile on her face and a generous heart. She has 6 young children, and has recently remarried, and is struggling to survive financially. Although she neglected her teeth before, due to several more recent issues, her teeth have quickly deteriorated in the last year. Her smile has gone from a gorgeous one to a smile with broken and decayed teeth and she is only in her 30's. She is in a lot of pain and has recurring infections. Her confidence is affected, but little did she know there may be more affected than her confidence to have such poor oral health. Her doctor said it may also be the reason for her recent miscarriages due to toxins in her blood, and the doctor advised her to avoid pregnancy again until her teeth are taken care of.

Her current husband has never had children of his own, but is helping to raise her 6 children selflessly. They are struggling financially now with a family of 8 to provide for. Her husband is a very responsible hard worker and with Susan's full time job, they are making it work. But there is no way to afford fixing Susan's teeth without insurance. Susan and her husband were excited when she became pregnant, to give him his first child. Then suddenly the baby's heart stopped beating without an explanation. They delivered the baby and had a funeral, but stayed positive to try again. She became pregnant with a baby girl. A couple of weeks ago at the ultrasound, the baby no longer had a heart beat. When she passed the baby a few days later, she lost a large quantity of blood and is recovering after hospital treatment. Dentist quotes to give Susan a healthy mouth again are very expensive. I want to raise money on her behalf to help her get the treatment she needs. This gift for Susan not only will help her emotionally and physically and with her confidence, but it will also get her on track to try again for their first baby together.
