Jon O'Connor's Winning Smile

Jon O'Connor is a man that has fallen on hard times recently. Nearly two years ago he lost his beloved wife of 20 years unexpectedly leaving him broken & alone. He was in a very dark place but visits from dear friends helped to carry him through and he decided last Spring to get back on the road full time for the first time since 2009. During his depression his teeth had fallen into a state of disrepair as one might expect would happen when one's whole life crashes in the blink of an eye without warning. It could happen to any of us.

He has recently gone to the dentist and they have suggested full dentures. The fine people at RESCU are covering some of the payment, & the folks at Aadams Dental in Magnolia are giving him a great price.  With this procedure Jon would be able to eat properly again & feel more confidence interacting with other people. Anyone that knows him knows what a sweet man he is, and he deserves a smile to match.

  The Dentist has requested $463 before they will make the impressions for the dentures. Jon still needs a few more teeth pulled before we leave for Arizona. We wanted to get this all done beforehand but there's simply not enough time. Thus the plan is to have them extract a few more teeth in the next week or two, then have them do the dentures when we get to Sherwood in April. We have just begun performing as a new duo act (The Toobadours!) & will be debuting our show all this year. Anyone that has debuted a new act before knows that this first year will be a skinny year. Getting these new teeth would not only help Jon's overall health & happiness, it will also help the show. If you have ever seen Jon perform, you know what a gift he is to the world of Entertainment.

  The money being raised will go towards the Extractions, the Full Dentures, and Adjustments to follow. Jon will be working in Texas in April and May and will get the procedures then if we have enough to proceed.  

  Jon has been reborn through his work as a performer. All he wants is to take over the world and have a kitchen to cook in. Also ponies. Any of the money raised will be helping him to rebuild his life. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Jon thanks you too!
