Will talk for food!

You may remember Bobby Bell from his 35 years in radio in and around Texarkana, Longview, and Tyler, Texas.  He has been using his voice talent to entertain us on radio, television, answering machines and other venues since he was 15!  However, he now faces the possibility of not being able to share his talents due to severe issues with his teeth.  He broke his back 3 years ago and has been left with severe nerve damage that requires heavy medications which have led to the need to replace all of his teeth with implants.  Ouch!  The main issue is the expense of such a procedure.  To be able to continue doing voicework and to speak as eloquently as he does, he cannot settle for dentures which would inhibit his eloqution substantially and that is something he would never settle for.  His clients get his absolute best and that is why many have been using him for years!  We are not ones who would normally share our financial needs, but Bobby's sister encouraged us to give others an opportunity to help him maintain this aspect of his life...in fact, his identity, and his livelihood.  We are continuing to research alternatives, but the most respected oral surgeon in our area believes this particular procedure will allow him to be able to speak clearly the day after the work is done.  With normal implants, you must wait months at a time for each phase to be completed which means months without the necessary 'instruments' to speak clearly.  The back issues has been challenging but to consider not being able to use his voice talents to maintain the clients who have stood with him over the last 3 years, is an even harder blow.  Thank you for considering helping with this need and be assured we continually pray for God's guidance as we "just keep swimming!"
