Mike Needs Biopsy-Possible Cancer

Words cannot describe how hard this is, to have to go beyond ourselves for help. My husband Mike Derouin went to the dentist on Monday July 10th because he was on the verge of pulling his own teeth it hurt so bad. The doctor came back with a look of "this is bad" on his face and that is the exact words he said to us. He showed us the exrays and pointed to the 6 teeth that absolutely have to be surgically removed. He also showed us the black void in his jaw on the exray. The doctor said that the black void is possibly cancer but could also be the worst infection he has ever seen. He told us we have a 50/50 chance in either direction. He said that what ever is going on in your jaw area has eaten it away to a 1/4 of an inch in width and if he was to get hit in the jaw his jaw would shatter. Great news all around huh? This is something that urgently needs to be taken care of and know for sure what he has. Even with the dental insurance we have our out of pocket cost for Anesthesia, Surgery for tooth removal, and, Biopsy is still $2500. We are trying our best to save up for this and any help would be greatly appreciated!
