Help Morgan Get Jaw Surgery (Again)

I've met my goal!! I don't want to take any money I don't need - so please, donate your money to someone else who needs it :) Thank you all so much, I love each and everyone of you. 

Five years ago, I had intensive upper jaw surgery to correct an overbite that would cause significant pain in the future. I went through three years of braces and a month of recovery time after the surgery. I thought I was in clear and that the worst was behind me – it was very exciting to look forward to a future without chronic pain. 

Despite my prior surgery, my jaw has relapsed. I have found out I will once again be needing braces and surgery on my upper and lower jaw—unexpected expenses which cost upwards of $14,000. I am in constant pain due to my jaw shifting and my teeth and well-being have been suffering too. I have neck pain, chronic headaches, and recently it's become painful when I chew for too long. 

My braces go on in January and my surgery is in August. Though the surgery is covered by OHIP, I will have to fully cover the cost of orthodontics ($7,400+) and the surgeon's fee ($5,000+). COVID has all but wiped out my savings and I need this surgery as soon as possible so my jaw doesn't worsen. 

I will be paying for as much as I can out of my own pocket, but this sudden expense is shocking and challenging. Any little bit would help, and I am incredibly grateful for the support shown by my family and friends.
