Bring Erin's Smile Back !

Erin is a single, hardworking Special Ed teacher, and mother of 3 who has spent the last two years furthering her education and graduationing with a Master's Degree in Education.  I met her at a very difficult time of my life and her positive attitude and caring spirit have inspired me. I would like to offer little something back to her and help her get out of medical debt.
What begin back in October as a beautiful lesson for Erin's 3 children has turned into a costly 4 month ordeal.
After a day of continuing her tradition of regular blood donation and showing her children how easy it is to save a life; Erin was awaken in the middle of the night by her child who was sick in the bathroom. She jumped out of bed too quickly  from a deep sleep and within a minute of being in the bathroom, passed out, hit the tile floor, and broke 3 front teeth and fratured her upper jaw.
She drove herself and her children to the ER and spent a long night there. 
That resulted in -  1. surgery to have the teeth reset to the bone (thankfully they were all salvageable),  2. a creative Halloween costume, 3. another procedure to have 6 braces put on the front teeth to stabilize them until they heal, and 4. the final procedure to put crowns on the broken teeth. 

After much pain, healing, missed work, and mounting medical/dental bills I'm happy to report that Erin's procedures have been successful and she now has a shining smile. Erin kept her sense of humor and positive outlook through the whole thing and I would love nothing more than to show her some love by helping to alleviate some of the financial burden.
Please find it in your heart to make a donation. $50 would be amazing, but every $5 and $10 makes a difference. Thank you in advance for showing Erin a fraction of the love and support she has given out over the years.
