THE STORY:

Hello my name is Jeff I am 44 years old and I am a single father of three wonderful kids whom I love more than than the air I breath. I strive daily to give them the life they deserve just as all kids do. Unfortunately the last few years have been extremely difficult for me and my children. Probably more for them than me. We have suffered a divorce after 21 years of marriage and to make things even more difficult after 43 years of no health problems at all and never even been to the emergency room I was admitted in January of 2016 for a ruptured blood vessel in my colon. According to the doctors I had been bleeding internally for several weeks. This also allowed infection to run through out my body causing even more problems. Once the infection was under control I had surgery to repair the damage in my colon. Once released I was quickly back in the trauma unit of the ER from an allergic reaction to the medication I was given. The incident with the blood vessel bursting is the first time I felt like death was very likely. This not only caused a tremendous amount of emotional stress on me and my family it was devastating financially. I was raised to not ask for handouts nor for any charity so I payed as much as I could and the remainder of just over 30k I am paying what I can each month. And since January I have had to return to the hospital two more times due to complications from infection in my sinuses and in my upper and lower jaw caused from multiple teeth that had died from dry sockets due to my body not producing saliva. This is quickly becoming an urgent situation for my health. The abscesses and infection pockets are eroding the bone structure in my upper and lower jaw bone. The specialists( both first,second and third opinions) say that I need to have surgery ASAP to have all of my teeth removed in order to prevent even more bone loss from more possible infection. I will have to under go at least two surgeries in order to remove the teeth and to do bone grafting in all of the teeth sockets and in the areas of the jaw bone that have been eroded away. This will not cover any form of tooth replacements i.e. dentures/implants which is not as important as getting my health back. I am a proud man that absolutely hates having to ask for anything from anyone but after the setbacks from missing work and having to pay for all that I could from the January events and the costs of divorce I have no choice but to plead for help from anywhere I can get it in order to be able to have the surgery that is needed now. Anything will be appreciated. If you are an oral surgeon or know an oral surgeon that is willing to donate the services or even be willing to take instalments me and my family would be eternally thankful. I am at this point willing to beg for any help that anyone can afford to do. In the event the goal amount is surpassed I would like to donate the amount above the goal to St. Judes Hospital for Children in order to give back some of what I was afforded. Thank you in advance to those that give. P.S. condition verification documentation can be available upon request. Those who help will be blessed and is welcome to contact me.

Sincerely,

Jeff Morrow
