Mom Needs Help

Hi all,

I am sorry I need to do this but, I am looking for any help I can get. We are desperate!

As many of you may know my mom has had lots of financial difficulties. She has been doing her best at living off approx. $8-900 a month from SS. Her kids, including Andy, have been doing everything we can to keep her afloat.

She has now been hit with a huge issue:

She has lived many years with just 8 lower teeth and a denture on the upper. She is now going to be losing those 8 teeth. She has no ridge to hold a denture on the lower. She has massive bone loss and her only option is implants and an over denture on the lower.

As you all know, dentistry is VERY expensive. We are right now working on getting many estimates to see where we can get the best price. The first estimate I got was from my dentist and even with discounts it still came to over $12,000. Terry is now working on the option of possibly taking her down to Mexico to see what the cost would be there.

She is obviously not able to afford much. Her kids are planning on doing everything we can but still very difficult to come up with that much money. We as a family decided to reach out and see if there is anyone out there that can help us fund this for her. Anything would help!!! Please feel free to share this with anyone else that I might have missed.

Thank you!
