Jeanne's Dental Fund

Jeanne is an outgoing, fun-loving and heartfelt person.  She can brighten a room with her smile and cares deeply for friends, family and those who need help.  When she sings she brings people to tears and touches people's lives wherever she goes.  To quote the Beatles, "To know her is to love her."
 
For nearly three years now, Jeanne has tirelessly volunteered her time and efforts to a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to helping our veterans, children with disabilities, the homeless, elderly, and the youth in our community.  She brings energy, enthusiasm, and a fresh perspective to any task put in front of her and can always be counted on when needed.

Over the last decade, Jeanne has struggled to improve her medically needed dental health. She put her trust in three separate dentists, all of whom failed her.  One was responsible for making her dental situation worse and even allowed his receptionist to use a dental grinding tool on her during a procedure.  Only after the threat of a lawsuit was Jeanne able to recover a very small portion of her money.  She has spent over $20,000.00 and has still lost most of her teeth.  Her teeth have continued to fall out and her remaining teeth are infected and cause her a great deal of pain. Her dental problems are also affecting her overall health and she is now unable to eat properly - creating additional health concerns.   

The decision has been made to have her remaining teeth removed and replaced with dentures.  She will have to undergo oral surgery to remove the teeth and contour her jawbone in preparation for the fitting of top and bottom dentures.  She will be without any teeth for approximately 8 weeks while the swelling in her gums goes down enough to be fitted for dentures. The entire process will take about 2 months and cost 11,400. She has the funds ($4,400) for the oral surgeon to remove her teeth and continues to save for the dental
procedure to follow.  Jeanne would appreciate any help to secure the funds needed ($7000) to finalize her urgently needed dentures. If you know Jeanne, you know she ALWAYS has a smile on her face. Your donation will help her smile again. A donation in any amount will be greatly appreciated.
