About this fundraiser

I live off of Social Security Disability and receive only one check monthly. I've lived with only my front teeth for the past 6 years but now they are starting to break. I cannot afford to pay for the dental work I need and I'm now unable to eat most foods because I can't chew them. Now I have an infection in several of my front teeth and my face is severely swollen on my right side. I'm in desperate need of help. I couldn't afford to pay for the services I've needed before because I had 4 children that I had to support while I was working, and know I can't afford it due to lack of income. I'm very insecure about going places and being around people because I know my breath is horrible even though I brush and use mouthwash regularly. I'm desperate at this point. I've tried to find other assistance or grants for help but no one can help. Medicare won't pay for the implants or even dentures. I don't qualify. (Which I don't understand!) I just wanted to be able to eat correctly and maybe go out without feeling like I can't even make eye contact with others people. I hate smiling or even talking because my mouth looks and smells terrible. I would be so very grateful for Any help I could receive. I'm so tired of being alone and depressed. 😔  Of I could get assistance, my whole life could change for the better. I've been dealing with this for so long but now the situation has gotten worse and there's nothing I can honestly do. Now my teeth are bad, my breath is bad, and my face is swollen. I would truly appreciate anything that could contribute to getting this problem resolved. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and for Any help you can offer … even if it's just a prayer. God bless you. 🙂
