Isabella's Oral Surgery
Organized by: Alison Sutton
Hi and thank you for visiting our fund raising page!
Isabella is a very energetic and outgoing 6 year old, she charms pretty much everyone she meets. Isabella's favorite things are dance, gymnastics and taking selfies and making videos with my cell phone. I wasn't able to get her in dance or gym this year so I had to buy a memory card for my phone for all the extra pictures and videos she has made this year(I delete some every now and then, but hate doing it). I included one of her better selfies on this page. She also really loves her Pooh bear so she wanted me to share the picture of the two of them as well.
Isabella needs your help. She needs an oral surgery that even though the dentist was kind enough to take $800 off of his fee is still going to cost about $5,000, all of which has to be paid upfront to the dentist and anestheologist and most of which will not be reimbursed to me by our insurance. Unfortunately we have very limited dental coverage.
We have had a tough year this year. We spent the first four months of the school year in the women's shelter because my oldest daughter, Karalee, didn't feel safe in our home. The root of her fears is a long story that would take us far off track so I'm not going to share it here. When we got home from Christmas vacation we discovered our house had been destroyed by flooding from broken pipes. We spent about 6 weeks in a hotel before a friend was kind enough to rent us a room.
I have fibromyalgia and my health problems resulted in the loss of the last job I worked early in 1999. I have tried to start a business on the internet and several direct sales opportunities to get myself and my children out of poverty but as of yet have been unsuccessful. I wish that I didn't need to ask for help with this but she really needs this care and I really need help to pay for it.
