Beautiful Smile

The picture was taken July 17th, 2007 with her brand new dentures. My friend had all teeth removed (health reasons) September 17th, 1999 & was forced to wait nearly 8 years before being able to pay $1,800 for those teeth. A run of bad luck this past year has made it necessary for her to replace her original dentures: approximately $2,000 stolen since October 1st, 2019 as well as a break-in the day before Christmas 2019 where numerous items were destroyed or taken. After many months wait, what with the Covid-19 lockdown, she finally has an appointment to have new dentures made on February 2nd, 2020. However, these new teeth will cost $2,500 Canadian & she is on a government disability pension, for she is 1 step away from spending the rest of her life in a wheelchair: therefore, there's no way she can come up with that much money in 4 months on her own. Being the type of person she is, she will NOT ask for help & is actually considering cancelling that February appointment that took 10 months to get. PLEASE, for this good & kind soul (who has literally given the shirt off her back & taken in strays (animals & humans) to her home because they had no place to go), help me to help her!!! She has been unable to work since the mid 90's, but that didn't stop her from volunteering at the local Soup Kitchen for over 13 years, until forced to stop in 2015 because of her health. Like her, I'm not the type to ask for help for myself. However, in the late 90's & early 00's, she took ME in as a homeless teen to take care of me until I was old enough to go out on my own. Sorry to be so long-winded but, if not for her all these years, I literally wouldn't be here. Thank you for reading this far & I appreciate it greatly, although not as much as she will if/when I can hand her the money she needs to help her get healthier again . . .
