Dentures For Desiree

Hello my name is Desiree Phillips, I was diagnosed with brain cancer (Medullablastoma) when I was 11 years old. I didn’t know what was going on, what to think, what Cancer really was, or how it would impact my life. Until I had to go through it. It's been a tough journey with limited resources available. But I have a great, supportive family and friends.

    Medullablastoma is pretty much controls the balance of your body. My parents say that I sound like horse when I walk, I don’t just fall down the stairs, I fall going up them too.

    The radiation treatments have caused me to have poor bone density because of that my teeth have been deteriorating. My teeth are getting even more worse. They have broken down into spikes that stab me inside my mouth and cause sores, It is very painful. I have to use wax for braces to cover them.

   I have already had my back teeth extracted, because they were causing me too much pain and I was getting infections. Infections can spread through the body and go to the heart, and can kill you, instantly. I have been afraid of this for years, I have been too ashamed to ask for help. I was hoping with the kindness and generosity of others, you could help me reach my goal.
I have been looking into Aspen Dental in Clarksburg to get them done.
