Help Raise Funds for Faiths's Teeth

This is Faith (far left). She is an inherent part of the Telluride Tribe. She spent most of her childhood pouncing around with Telluride kids until she had to move away in the 6th grade for unforeseen family reasons. We all remember Faith having no teeth from the get go. They were soft, prone to decay and had to be pulled. She had the most adorable 'toothless' smile until she was 9 yrs old, when adult teeth started naturally coming in.  This became a chronic situation..... and Faith , again, has no teeth. Shes been toothless for over a year!! The infection in her mouth is very serious and needs to be dealt with immediately. She actually has been hospitalized twice because of the infection and has nearly died..
Her life has not been an easy road; she lost her mom when she was 5 yrs old. She became addicted to painkillers at the age of 15. She's now 27 years old and has been clean for 2 years. She has been on the path to put her life back together but she cannot get a job without TEETH. At the moment she strings jobs together working with Dog Rescues ... Dogs don’t care if she doesn’t have teeth, but people do! This gofundme is not just about raising money for her surgery. This is truly about giving Faith an opportunity to find a job so she can pursue the amazing life she deserves and take care of herself.
She first needs to get all of the roots pulled (24 of them), which will cost $2800 after Medicaid. Then a set of Dentures, so that her gums and bone can heal. Ultimately she will need Implants.. Implants will cost $1500/ tooth..and again, she will need 24 of them. .....Let's help Faith feel the LOVE that is there for her and start the process of getting some TEETH, so she can get on with her life!
ONE❣️LOVE
