About this fundraiser


I'm Grace, a 21-year-old living in Savannah, Georgia, with big dreams and one significant challenge on my journey—a severe underbite with a crossbite. I'm excited to share my story with you, as I begin this journey to a better life!


I'm currently working towards a career in esthetics, a field I'm deeply passionate about. However, my underbite has caused me a range of problems that have affected my daily life. I struggle with breathing difficulties, biting and chewing food, jaw pain, and numerous other symptoms that have made life a bit of a challenge.


I've been fortunate to connect with an incredible surgeon in Tennessee who will be performing the life-changing procedure for me next year. This surgery will address my underbite but also includes the removal of my wisdom teeth and work on my nose to improve my airways. It's considered reconstructive surgery, and it's essential for me to lead a healthier, happier life. While insurance covers most of the hospital bills, my surgeon doesn't accept any insurance. We believe he's worth it, but that means we're facing a financial hurdle of around $30,000 to cover his fees.


This surgery is necessary for my well-being, and it's about more than just aesthetics. With your generous contributions, I'll be able to eat better, breathe better, and reduce the risk of developing arthritis in my jaw joints. The stress of saving money for this surgery has taken a toll on me and my family, especially considering the challenges we're all facing now.

Any amount you can donate will make a profound difference in my journey. Your support will not only relieve the financial burden but also give me the opportunity to live a healthier, more fulfilling life. I'm committed to working hard to show my appreciation and gratitude to each and every one of you.


I want to emphasize that any donation, no matter how big or small, is invaluable to me. Your belief in my journey means the world to me, and I'll carry your support with me on this transformative path.

It would mean everything to me if anyone could contribute to my fundraiser. Your kindness and generosity will help me take the necessary steps towards a brighter and healthier future.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering my cause and being a part of my journey. Your support is greatly appreciated.


With heartfelt gratitude,
