Emergency life operation

At the age of 16 I was diagnosed with stage 2 cervical cancer and the chemo and radiation has done a number on my teeth and gums. I really need help and I hope this may be a start to me being able to live and smile again. The decaying and breaking of the teeth is painful and I just really need a great dentist who cares and will do an excellent job. I have also been told that this is a genetic issue. In January / February my teeth took a bigger affect on my health and I had heart attack at 31 years old and two weeks after I had heart surgery I was in ICU for two days because my blood pressure would not go down. I am 32 yrs old and I have always had dental problems, over the past few yrs it has become worse and I am ashamed to smile or make eye contact with others because I feel they will see my teeth. I feel so ugly and all I ever wanted was to be able to take pictures with my daughter and be proud of the picture instead of feeling I will make it ugly. I have no dental insurance and its hard for me to raise money because I am only working part time because I am taking care of my ill mother. My plea to you is if you can't help please just share my story. My pride is lost, my faith is shattered,  and right now I just really hope my prayer is answered. This issue can deteriorate your health and cause death. I have a little girl to live for and I deserve to watch her grow.
