Dental fund for cancer treatment

My name is Judy Todd. I am 67 years old. In August I was diagnosed with breast cancer and bone cancer.  Recently I completed radiation treatment for a tumor on my hip so that I would be able to walk. I know I have a long road ahead of me with many treatments to come.

  I met with the Oncology doctor and we discussed the possible treatments she would prefer. She would like to start me off with a new type of medication, but due to the poor condition of my gums and teeth I need to have all my teeth removed and gums healed before they start with this medication. My teeth all broke off due to uncontrolled diabetes I didn’t know I had until it was to late and it had done damage to my teeth and feet.  This medication could cause un-healing gums and ulcers.

  When I called around to have all my teeth pulled and my gums treated, I found the cost would be $7,000 to $10,000, which would included me having dentures. As of now I can not bite or chew correctly because my teeth are all broken off, therefore I am not eating the food that will promote good nourishment I will need to fight the dreaded disease.  I am only on Medicare with no dental insurance and I can not afford this dental work.

  My 70 year old husband (Billy Todd) is still working full time, and keeping a roof over our heads and he is not in the best of health either.  My daughter lives with us and is disabled.

  With everything closing in around me and being scared to death, some friends suggested Go Fund Me. So here I am, hoping and praying for least help to have my teeth pulled and gums treated and some dentures, so I can start treatments to fight this disease and take some burden off my husband.

 Thank you so much in advance for any little bit you can spare.
