Help Tato With Dental Expenses

We are writing about one of our beloved teachers and fellow tennis player Tato. You may not know, but Tato is experiencing some pretty severe dental challenges that are causing her a lot of pain - recently there have been times she has been unable to teach because of the pain. Some of what she is dealing with relates to dental work she previously had done in Georgia, and some of it is new. We have been helping her get to dentists and specialists to correctly diagnose what needs to be done. She does not have dental insurance, and she is facing projected bills of $2,000 or more. Tato is working hard to establish herself in the US and to get her tennis teaching career off the ground here. But, she does not have the resources to pay for dental work of this magnitude.
We are asking whether you might be able to contribute to help Tato with this - any little bit helps.
Finally, We know that this is sensitive for Tato - I believe it will be difficult for her to accept money, so we intended to keep the donations anonymous. (Kira is helping Tato navigate and get care, and Kira will ensure that any contributions get to Tato in a respectful way that feels supportive).
Thank you for your support!
