Independent Singer & Musician plea for a little help.

As my teeth crumble, so does my career. Thankfully, it won't take much to cure my woes; with a little help.

Short Summary

A few years ago my intestines ruptured.  Yeah, go figure!
My wife got me to the hospital just in time.  I went from the door to the table quick.
I heard them say, "He's dying, we got to go now...".

I didn't die!  They saved my life.
I had a lengthy hospital stay as peritonitis had a grip on me.
I recovered from the ordeal with one exception...

It was not long before I had noticed my teeth were blackening.
The Doc said it was from the diseases and would only become worse.  Great.
Then they began crumbling and falling out within a year.

As a singer/musician/entertainer, this is a hard blow.

My Name is Leo.
I am a Veteran, home owner, taxpayer.
Served on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club.
Currently serve as a Precinct Committeeman.
I rebuild computers and bicycles and give them to children without as a hobby.
Married once to the most incredible woman for 24 years and counting.
We have 4 cats; Mommers, Putt Putt, Nana-banana and Fuzzy Boy!

I suppose what I'm trying to say is that my wife and I are good people,
in a bit of a hard time.  With the Grace of God and the kindness of others, we will surpass this major hurdle.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and your generosity.






What We Need & What You Get

 

Well...I need teeth!  The ultimate would be implants, but that is a luxury. I only need the essential.  The remaining teeth will have to be removed and a set of dentures made.  Several will require an oral surgeon.  I am going to Affordable Dentures for the remaining extractions and dentures...

Approx. 2000. for Oral surgery/Anesthesiologist. (Dr. Jay Cagata, Cape Coral)
Approx. 3000. for the remaining extractions and denture set.

I had a hard time trying to think of some perks, but I have a few really cool ones!

Watch my "update" video for a quick demonstration!

*Delivery time is subject!   It's a creative process!   And depending on the state of affairs in my mouth.  I do not expect delay, I already have some ideas floating around in my head.   If needed, I have friends with great vocal talent to call on to do the vocal tracks!

The Impact

Wow.  What can I say?  To be pain free and healthy again, that is quite an impact.
To be able to continue working in my career is quite an impact.  To be free of this distracting constant pain and discomfort and move on with life; impact.  Life changing impact.
But the impact is farther and deeper than that.  There is something deeper going on within this platform.  It affects each and every one of us.  It is very human.  And we are all the better for it.  People are awesome.
