This week, our friend and colleague Lauren was informed that she requires emergency dental surgery to fix a painful and urgent dental matter. The procedure is not covered by dental insurance, and the problem is interfering with her ability to eat, drink and talk. She's in a lot of pain, and has been for a while- putting off surgery for lack of funds and insurance. While she was originally told the surgery would cost approximately $4500, yesterday the confirmed cost was closer to $9500.
Lauren Jiles, aka Lou Lou la Duchesse, is a kind and generous contributor to our community. She is an inspiring artist and advocate. She also doesn't want to ask for help (I am doing this with her permission). She gives freely of her time and energy to help others. Since the beginning of quarantine, like so many of us, neither she nor her husband have been able to work. She is a wonderful mom to her five year old daughter and works very hard to take care of her.
I know it's a very rough time for a lot of people right now, but let's show her (and her dazzling smile) some love. Anything you can give is greatly appreciated.
