*if you are able*
I’ve worked hard to keep this Hope’s Still Here more about my journey with chronic illness, share others I find inspiring, and causes I feel driven to share about.
Today’s different and harder … it’s an important note about the effects of #gastroparesis & living with a #chronicillness .
My gastroparesis and GERD have caused extensive damage to my teeth and oral health. My dentist, oral surgeon, gastroenterologists, and I have done the best we can to slow down or offset the damage but it’s now too far gone. I have to have my teeth removed and replaced with a fixed hybrid denture.
This is an intensive procedure that involves extraction, a few implants placed for the denture and my jaw bone to connect and heal properly. This procedure is also extremely expensive and not covered by insurance.
So my sister and I have started a GoFundMe page to raise the funds needed to cover this procedure. So if you are able to help, any support would be greatly appreciated. Also please share this post.
