Three years ago, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 tongue cancer. TONGUE cancer. For a non-smoker, this was quite the blow and because of intense radiation to my mouth and jaw area, I lost my teeth.I need to raise $65,000 because dentures and implants aren’t covered by Medicaid OR Medicare. THIS is my fundraising site and THIS is my cancer story where you can read what happened and how.If you can donate, thank you so much. Every dollar is a dollar more than I had before. If you can’t, know that I appreciate all good thoughts that come my way. Please reblog my post anyway? Put my fundraiser link on your Facebook, your twitter, wherever? That’s plenty helpful.Thank you all (I love my fandom friends so much) for your continued support.
PS: Tagging this obnoxiously for the signal boost.
PPS: If you have ANY questions, send me an ask.

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.
