Hopes Reconstructive Surgery

$3,920 of $5,200 goal

Raised by 36 people in 27 months
My name is Hope. On June 9th 2010 I was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. I am lucky to be alive. The road getting to where I am today has not been easy. I hit a guardrail face first and ripped off my upper jaw, lower jaw, cut my tongue almost completely off, ripped away all the bones on the left side of my face, as well as removed my nose. I have had several surgeries over the past 6 years but still have a few more before my face works like it should again. Since the accident I have lost all of my self esteem, and have never gotten comfortable with what I see when I look in the mirror.
The surgery I am trying to have next will close the gap in the corner of my left eye. Because it's so open it doesn't close at night and dries my eye out severely. I only have one open nostril so the nostril on the right will have to have the scar tissue cut out of it so I can breath on both sides. Also because of the way my lips were ripped off they don't close completely so the final step will be to restructure my lips to close. Then I will focus on hopefully making it to an oral surgeon.
I created this Gofundme account hoping I might raise enough money to finally finish the surgeries I need. I can't do it myself so I am reaching out. Thank you for reading my story. I would like to thank you in advance for helping me. I appreciate it more than I could ever express.

Hi y'all!! I want to thank everyone for all their support. I saw the doctor today and it's just $2100 to finish my surgeries and have my face completely restored as close as I can get it!! If I can get $1100 in donations I can come up with the other $1000 myself. So any help will be greatly appreciated.

So today I got my old braces off. Oral surgery is going to cost $30thousand dollars. So alternative is: I got a new orthodontist. He is putting a butterfly expander in to open my jaw slowly. Will take a little longer but cost much much less. I will have to have the braces again however we are going to expand my jaw first. The cost is $5500. My orthodontist is Dr. Boggan it Orthodontics South in Pelham. He is in the top 1% in the US of orthodontists. If you want to help with this fee it would be awesome. Any help is appreciated. His phone number is 205-664-4140. They will probably need my name: Hope Carter and DOB: 11/26/1976
