Emergency Dental Work for Shane Sischo

My name is Shane Sischo. Allow me to tell you a little about myself. I am involved in countless things, in the community, in which I give myself selflessly. From working fundraisers and major events to building community skateparks for the youth and art for the masses, I earn barely enough to get by. Some would even say not enough. I am here to ask for your help. As many who are close to me know, I am in horrible pain daily. Not bone or muscle pain, but my teeth. Imagine all of those toasts of whiskey I have shared with you all. All those were in searing pain. When I speak to you about community and family, my words are sometimes tearful. Not because of sentiment, but because my teeth. When I am humbly sitting with you dining on divine food, it is through the taste of agony. Even the softest of things kill me. I suffered a series of unfortunate abuses when I was younger, causing me severe facial bone damage. None of my teeth issues are related to mistreatment or substance. They are all due to someone else being careless and cruel. After being abused in my youth, everything from smashing my face into concrete to being hit in the mouth with a bat, I learned I didn't have to stay in that place. I was emancipated when I was sixteen. Since then, I have done everything and gone everywhere with the help of my friends and by my own skills and drive. It became brutally aparent to me recently, that I am not happy because it is hard to sleep, hard to speak, and hard to eat. Really it hurts to do anything. Physically and mentally I am drained from dealing with this pain. I am also concerned that this infection in my teeth could spread to my brain or my heart. I realize serious action needs to be taken.So I am here asking for your help. Please help me get better, so I may be even more loving and caring then I already am. So, if you can, help me reach my goal. Anything helps. As we all know. I don't ask for help often, if at all.Thank from the bottom of my heart. And I give you myself. All of my love and my talents.
