Becky's facial bone transplant

For those of you who know my mom, Rebecca Bisson, you know that she is fun, hard working, strong, and above all else unconditionally kind. I have seen my mother battle Hodgkin's Lymphoma cancer, diabetes, a disabled daughter, a husband with two heart attacks, all while raising four kids and giving us all the love and support we could need. A few days ago Becky had developed a painful abscess in her tooth. She went in for a consultation in hopes of just getting the tooth removed. This was not the case. After getting a filling put in a few years ago, the doctor neglected to notice an infection that had started underneath the tooth. Because she was not informed of this infection it has now traveled through her bone and into her sinuses. This explains why she has been having severe sinus infection for the past few years. The doctor said that there will need to be a full bone transplant in her face or the infection will travel into her eye. The doctor said this is urgent and cannot wait and will cost at least 2000 dollars after insurance. After watching my mom be so strong for so many years I had to watch her breakdown today and there was nothing I can do. I definitely don't have the money after what Red Tide has done to the tourism business in Florida, but I am going to put everything I have to make sure she gets this taken care of safely. After all she has given me her everything my whole life. Not sure if this will do much, but anything and everything helps!
