Personal message

My wife had a squamous cell carcinoma on her tongue in 2005. Commando surgery was performed.

30 radiation & 3 chemo sessions were done as prevention, and through God’s grace, she is in remission since then. Unfortunately, due to radiation she struggled with infections in her jaw for more than a year post opp.  30 Sessions hyperbaric oxygen therapy eventually assisted in the healing.  The long-term damage of the radiation is becoming more evident as time is progressing, she is struggling with chronic periodontitis in her lower teeth and starting to lose some of them.

The only solution is to have an implant-supported hybrid, as dentures are not an option due to insufficient available bone. Unfortunately, without teeth, you can't eat, and it will impact her speech even more. Please help Tinkie.

Medical aid sees this as cosmetic and not a necessity, and the amounts charged are astronomical.

In 2005, my wife had tongue cancer, underwent treatment, and is now in remission. Radiation damage to her lower teeth has led to tooth loss due to chronic periodontitis. We need help with expensive implant-supported teeth since medical aid deems it cosmetic. Your support is crucial.
