Malea's Implant surgery

$1,795 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 16 people in 16 months
Malea was born with a bi-lateral cleft and no palate.  She is 16 and has undergone 12 surgeries and has more to go through.  The next surgery needs to be done before they can proceed with any more.  Unfortunately this next surgery will cost $20,000 and the insurance will not cover this one.  She needs extensive implants.  She is missing 6 permanent teeth.  They have moved her teeth around with braces trying to close gaps.  She will loose her 2 front teeth in addition to the others that need replaced. She will need more bone graphing she is missing bone in several areas. She is being treated by a doctor in Pittsburgh, PA, Dr. Costello. I do not want her to have to go through the rest of her life with a reatiner or something like that .  She has been through so much and the last surgery they had to break her face to move the face forward , which was very painful.  She is an amazing girl.  If you can find it in your heart to help with the funds to allow her to have this surgery, it will help her for the rest of her life.  They need this surgery to be paid for in full and in advance before they can preceed with the surgery.  I thank you in advance for anything you might be able to do to help.  God Bless you and if you cannot financially help her, if you could please pray for her and for us as we get through this next stage in her treatment.

Well we met with the prosthodontics office. They took impressions and gathered x-rays and information. We are waiting for them to call. We will meet with the doctor this next time and hopefully have a game plan put into place which will give us something to shoot for. Please keep praying and donating to help Malea reach the goal to allow her to move forward so she can finally get her implants to allow her to eat properly. Thanks in advance
