Operation Julie's Smile

Like so many people I love to Blog and have met the most wonderful people along the way - there are times when it makes me proud to be a Blogger and this is one of them.  I was very moved by this story and am honoured to be taking part in this heartwarming event

Julie shares her story on her Blog Julie's Open Window

Many of you may have heard that I recently
had to have emergency oral surgery which resulted
in the removal of my front teeth.
As a child, I struggled with brittle teeth due to
some health concerns and my parents did all
they could to ensure that I went into adult-hood
with the best teeth possible. Unfortunately with age,
the brittle teeth became a problem again and well,
long story short, the dentist recommended that
I bite the bullet and have them all replaced.

I made the appointment, had the consultation
and was handed a piece of paper that said to
bring $4,000 with me to have the rest of the teeth
taken out. I was in shock because the dentist made
reference to the idea that 'it could all be worked out' ; )
Well, here I am today, missing front teeth (and a few others)
and being frustrated because I believed that this was
a procedure that would be taken care of quickly.
The unfortunate thing, is that THAT amount was JUST for the
removal of the rest of my teeth...it does not account
for the 'permanent teeth' that would need to be put in place.
When Julie's teammate Nicole Rixon of Sweet Stamp Shop heard what had happened, she contacted not only the Design Team but a variety of other friends and teammates of mine and Operation Julie's Smile was born...
If you are interested
