Hello, my name is Shauna, and I have an amazing smart and kind 12 year old boy. The only blight in his life is that he never smiles. He never smiles because when he does the horrible defect in his mouth causes him humiliation and torment from others. It tears at my soul to be able to do nothing about this for him. My husband is disabled from an accident that broke his leg hip and spine, and my job pays just enough to feed us. We do not qualify for Government aid, but make so little. I am praying someone here will help. We were told by the orthodontist that Dylan would need intense braces therapy, as his teeth are a worst case scenario, and even a danger to him, as they are so bent into each other, and sticking so far out of his mouth. His jaw is very crooked. Dylan will need 4 or more years of braces before we can hope his mouth will straighten out.
