Renee Jett's Life Changing Surgery

Hello, my name is Juliana Jett and I am raising money to help pay for my mom's medical bills for her upcoming surgeries. My mom, Renee, was diagnosed with cancer of the tongue in 2003. Due to heavy radiation received many years ago, she now has Osteoradionecrosis and several fractures in her mandible. If you have met my mom in the past 12 years, you would notice that her ability to speak clearly is difficult; her mouth barely opens; she has difficulty getting food into her mouth and chewing.  She lives in horrible pain daily.  In the next year or 2, she'll be undergoing several reconstructive surgeries thanks to the wonderful surgeons at MD Anderson in Texas. Her appointments have already started and require payment up front.  The first jaw replacement surgery is scheduled for March 1st. The planned procedures will hopefully stop the bone from further disintegration and posssible infections.  Also, with therapy, they will be able to reteach her to speak a bit clearly and help her to eat solid foods easier.  All that I ask are your prayers and any donation that your family can manage. Every little bit helps.  Any funds not needed will be donated to St Jude's Children's Research Hospital.  Thank you from my family and me, and God bless.
