My name is Rebecca. I am a 22 year old wife, and mother of a
beautiful 18 month old baby girl.
This past November, my daughter headbutted me, breaking my front

I was denied a new tooth by my insurance company, because it is
cosmetic. But for me, it is so much more.
I am a waitress. My personality, my conversation, and my smile, are
how I provide for my family. It saddens me that I have to try and
hide my teeth when talking to people. I never feel comfortable in
photos anymore. I have even had customers complain that people
shouldnt have to "look at that while they are trying to eat."
I know it sounds like silly wish, what with all the people on this
site who truly need for rent money, and food, and other things,
that are so important. And I understand. I know how it feels to
need for all of those things, believe me.
$600 is what it will cost to fix my tooth, out of pocket.
As a struggling young family, we barely have an extra $60, much
Please, if you can do anything at all, help me smile again.
