On the way home from work in New York I was in a really bad accident. A simple ride from a scooter flipped and I broke my jaw in three places all the way up to my cheek bones. I lost a few teeth, unfortunately the front ones. As living alone trying to save for my masters it was a big scare but luckily I was able to stay at Elmhurst Hospital, had great doctors to save my jaw and reconstruct my face, but the recovery process is very long and costly. Due to that, I moved to Ecuador for a better chance to reconstruct my mouth and recover. https://gofund.me/466f7b97
Due to New York being so expensive, I’ve had to move to Ecuador to have my arch bar removed and then I must have bone graft, gum graft, braces, implants and teeth put in. I am now working, since I have lost almost all my savings in staying afloat until I was able to move to Ecuador from NY. Any help is hugely be appreciated. I am now six months post op and ready to get exams done to start with my braces, bone grafts, gum grafts and hopefully in a few more months, implants. I hope all that goes well here in Cuenca. My job in Astoria, NY was so amazing to help me start the page and with the amount we raised I was able to pay my ticket to Ecuador and get a couple exams done (x-rays and tomography’s) but I always need new ones as I progress. Again, I appreciate any help or any sharing of my page to also raise awareness.. as scooters seem so harmless, but just one unlucky fall and you could lose a big part of your face and life. Thank you again for listening, reading, and helping me out.
