Tina Needs New Teeth

I have come a long way... If you know me, you are aware of at least some of the devistation, struggles, tragic loss and severe trauma  my family and  I have suffered  over the last decade or so. After all that we endured and the sacrifices we have made, the few of my family that are left are my life now. I have personally fought addiction, depression, anxiouty and grief on a tremendous level and I am somehow still standing.

Through the grace of God and the support of a few amazing earth angels I have the blessing of being here now. I want my smile to reflect my inner self and it's beauty. Not only that but if you have had dental issues, you know how painful one bad tooth can be. If you don't know, I hope you never have to...  Well I only have 9 teeth left and every one of them is decayed beyond saving. I have gum disease as well. This is due to a childhood of poverty and a battle with addiction as a young adult that I am now finally winning. But the aftermath remains.So, I have lived with this pain for my whole life and now that I am finally doing the work necessary to preserve and maintain my health, I need to fix my teeth in order to continue progress. I can't eat and am loosing weight. My twote are falling out and I have a job i love but it requires me to speak to groups of people daily... It fills me with shame embarassment daily that I have earned the right to leave in my past where belongs.

I  have an appointment on the 8th of Sept. with a terrific dental team, Plano Modern Dentistry. But, I need $1000 on the day of my appointment which I'll have some of and then and I have to pay the rest over the next few months.

Please help however you can. If 1000 of y'all donate 8 bucks I can have the procedure to extract and replace every tooth.

I know the struggle is real and we are all suffering some serious life issues these days, but any little bit helps. Instead of giving the bum at the gas station a few bucks today, give it to me. He will be there next time you feel like donating to someone lol.

I guess  I am reaching out to you all in hopes that you can help me with the miracle I have been needing for so long cause I have worked hard to get here and its time to make it happen. Thanks all and God bless.
