Hi my name is Michelle, and i want to first thank you for taking the time to read this. I am in desperate need of major dental work. My story begins when i was only 10 years old it was christmas morning and i walked out my front door and slipped on a patch of ice breaking my front tooth. As it was x-mas morning i went to the emergancey room and i had an actual cast put on my front tooth. Because of this i had alot of dental work done root canal, braces to hold down my front broken tooth also gum surgeryafter all that work over many years i ended up having a crown on my front tooth. All was good for a few years but eventually i ended up with an infection that spread through my gums and my teeth started breaking. Without insurance i was helpless so instead of having major dental work i had to have some of my teeth pulled with minimal preventive dental work done i did everything i could afford. A couple more years went by then in 2010 i lost everything in the Rhode Island flood in minutes i lost everything i owned, including my car. In had only inches of my car antenna above water it was completely under water. everything in my home was lost i ad a water level of 6 feet in my one floor home. I became homeless in an instant i have since struggled to rebuild my life. But i unfortunately havent been able to have any dental work done since the flood. Now my mouth is a mess i have teeth broken to the gumline, broken front teeth im missing almost all my back teeth either from being previosly removed or having been broken to my gumline. I am in constant pain everyday,to the point i often cry just from the pain. i gargle evryday with salt water because of infection. I cant smile at all. I am here asking for donations to get the proper work done i often go to sleep thinking i might not wake up afraid an absess will go to my brain and i would die. So please if anyone can help me i would be forever gratefull to you. I not only would be able to smile but be pain free physically and mentally. If anything thank you again for even taking the time to read this. I wish health, happiness,and peace to all. again i thank you from the bottom of my heart because you helped to save my life.
