All I want for Christmas is my top teeth.

44334816_1577399189356292_r.jpeglet me start by saying this is a very sensitive topic for me. As you can see my picture I don't like to show my teeth when I smile. But if you ever knew me in person or if you know me you know I love to laugh and if you know me now you know I like to cover my face when I laugh. The reason I'm asking for help is not for cosmetic reasons it's for my health. For the last two years I have been in and out of dentist office with one infection after another I've had 5 root canals in one day with the intent of getting crowns and not being able to afford the treatment so therefore my teeth have failed even further. I have finally found a dentist who is listening to me and is going to help me remove my entire upper maxillary and put an immediate denture in. But the procedure, even with my dental insurance, is very costly and with being a student in nursing school it's very hard to save up all the money needed for surgery. The total cost all together was $2525. I have paid 900 toward the Denture, and so far have successfully saved $540 towards my surgery. This still leaves $1,185 left to raise safe I believe I can come up with another 600 through my own efforts. But given that Christmas i Has just happened and I only have until January 20th to afford the surgery. I'm asking for help. To my friends and family a lot of you know what this surgery means to me. Please anything and everything is so appreciated no matter how big or small. Even if you can't donate if you'd just be willing to share in hopes that this will reach someone who can you'd still be my hero. I appreciate and love all of you thank you for taking time to look at my story and thank you for either sharing or donating. I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
