Hi I'm Rubin, a stage four cancer survivor. In July, I went to the dentist because of pain with my wisdom teeth. The dentist took x-rays and explained that he didn’t want to remove the wisdom teeth based on my health history, heart strength and unknown effects from cancer radiation treatments three years ago. There was a chance my jaw would break because of its weaken state and my heart may fail during the procedure.
I met with the oral surgeon two weeks later and he too was concerned about the removal of the wisdom teeth and required that I take 30 days (6 weeks) of Hyperbaric Chamber treatment, 20 days (4 weeks) before the oral surgery and 10 days (2 weeks) after. The hyperbaric treatment will strengthen my jaw and heart muscle. Insurance denied the treatment and we appealed. Finally the treatment begins.
Over the next six weeks I will create a daily video. In these videos, I’ll go into detail about my cancer and treatment. I’ll share about the first time I felt the bump to the day they released me cancer free. How lucky I was to have a wife, family and church as my support to recovery.
This is my reflection back on the cancer experience and the effects on my life now.
The expenses and bills will create a hardship for my family and I wanted to create a solution to cover the expenses. The family members should not have the burden of the financial hardship, but it does happen.
It is a hard and humbling moment to ask for help.
"Smile for Survival" is my way of finding that solution for my family and those cancer survivors and their families that need help. http://smileforsurvival.com
I will create value perks and rewards for your help and when the campaign is successful, we will share our experience with other cancer survivors and their families.
Give the gift of support.
