In my life so far...I've never been the type of person to ask for anything...but being that I'm In the situation I'm currently In...I thought you
all would be the best people to turn too...for guidance and some helpful advice...
I'm doing the best I can to stay clear minded and focused through these trying times, I was doing so good and finally felt a sense of peace in my
life after seeing my father whom I've had a distant relationship with. Unfortunately though I've been hit with a bomb shell. My mom didn't want to
tell me nor make me stress over the situation she's currently in. She's the type of person that keeps the things going wrong in her life to her
self. The type of person who could be going through something horrible but you wouldn't notice. Because she keeps that strong exterior of hers while
also maintaining her pride as a single mother to me and my sister.
A couple of month's ago she received word that she has a major bone loss going on, on the right side of her mouth. It appears that the enamel is
literally dissolving within her gums. The unusualness of this occurrence is that it's only happening on the upper right side of her mouth. When
asked, the dentists she's been dealing with don't even have an answer for it. And when she came to me In tears telling me the news my whole world
had suddenly, came to a halt. I felt and still do feel lost.
I want to wake up from this nightmare that has become very much so a reality....
Could you imagine the thought of not being able to enjoy a smile...always feeling uncomfortable about your appearance because of the looks you may
get? And the non existence of understanding that random people may have because of it? The judging one acquires from something they cannot control?
I know this is a lot to take In and I'm sorry for dumping this onto you guys. So...the solutions? Well there is two ways to go about the problem. The
less expensive way would be to get a removable dencher she would be able to put in or take out...but the fact still remains she would have to look at
her self in the mirror without those teeth.
The other solution which Is definitely a more expensive route, would be to get permanent implants where the teeth are missing. Indeed It Is way more
expensive but at least she would not have to worry about the looks or the thought of the missing teeth at all.
So what I'm going to do Is start up a foundation or charity whatever It's called, to raise money for her to get the procedure...unfortunately it's
like 20 thousand dollars and her insurance doesn't cover any of it.
Understand I'm not asking for pity or charity...but I'm going to do whatever It takes in order to make her happy. She's done everything and
sacrificed everything in order for me and my sister to grow up not having to worry where the next meal Is coming from. So in turn I owe her
everything. I figured I might as well ask yall, some who may have experience or advice on how I can start up a foundation for her.
I'm going to talk to some people I know to ask for advice in starting up a non profit organization.
Damn I didn't mean to pour my heart out...sorry about that...but I'm losing sleep because of the situation at hand.
If anyone can help me I'd appreciate It.
