SURGERY DATE: April 6th (FRIDAY)
Complete extraction of my teeth, plus they’re going to fix my face so that all the edema that’s been haunting me since my original surgery will no longer be an issue.
I’ll be toothless for almost a year, and I’ll be following a no-chew diet.
Even if you can’t donate (especially if you can’t donate) PLEASE REBLOG. A dollar is a more than I had before:

UPDATE! Surgery approved!

I guess she didn’t like the idea of me coming down to sit in her office very much.

BUT! You’ve all read my Cancer Story. You’ve seen the photos, you’ve read about the chemo and the radiation and seen me talk about how my teeth have been getting steadily worse.

You saw me get excited last August when I was told there was a plan for dentures (which included spending my summer in a hyperbaric chamber) and then get crushed when I was told they weren’t possible. You saw in October when I was told about a new and better plan and then you’ve seen me wait and wait and WAIT.

Today? My surgery was approved. :D New teeth ahoy.

Well, first, the old ones have to come out. Then the whole year of waiting thing, but whatever. I can do this. The whole ‘losing half a tongue’ bit was the hardest part, right? *crosses fingers*

Please pass along my fundraiser?  The link is here at GiveForward. I still have to raise about THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS, which is more than most people pay for a new car, I know. Just for teeth that a lot of people take for granted.

I’m shamelessly tagging and including the fandoms I’m a part of in hopes that THEY will pass it along, too. Tell everyone you know, even if you cannot donate yourself. Every dollar is a dollar I didn’t have before.

Thank you so much for your support.
