Sedation fund for major dental procedure

Here goes: I feel weird asking this, but I have had some friends suggest I crowdfund sedation for a rather horrible involved dental procedure I have coming up next month. Just as I moved to the US 6 months ago, my dental nightmares began: my childhood-era 1990s dental work failed dramatically and I have to completely replace most of the teeth in the front of my mouth now. I have a procedure scheduled for March 17th, which involves removing a bridge, two extractions, doing two bone grafts (including removing bone from my chin for this) and screwing four implants into my jaw. I can't afford the approx $1600 (approx £950) it would cost to put me under for it, and shots of local anaesthetic don't work on me very well at all. (I had a couple of extractions done a few months ago and felt *everything*.) If you would be willing to contribute toward my "sedation fund", any amount at all to help me reach this goal, I would immensely appreciate it. The $1780 includes the $1600 for two hours of paying an anaesthesiologist ($800/hr), plus gofund me fees. Thank you SO much for any donations and signal boosting you can give me on this. Much love!
