Please Consider Helping a Friend in Need – Bumped


Update 2: Thanks to everyone’s help, Zilla is able to get the care she needs and should be back to her old self in no time! 🙂

Update: This post has been bumped for those of you who may have missed it over the weekend. So many of you have already given to help out, and Zilla sends along her thanks. She’s on her way to raising enough to getting the problem taken care of properly, but isn’t there yet.


I don’t do this often. But it appears Zilla of the Resistance, who is a wonderful patriot and fellow upstate New Yorker, appears to be in quite a bit of pain, and in desperate need of some help. She’s reached out and asked for it, and for those of us who say government isn’t the answer to our problems, this is the chance to put our money where our mouths are. (No pun intended.)

I hate having to ask for help, but I am asking for it because I need it badly. I can’t go on like this. If you know an oral surgeon in the Hudson Valley region who’s like to fix a blogger’s mouth in exchange for ad space, please let me know. Prayers are greatly appreciated if you can spare one or a few. Feel free to share your wisdom if you know of any cheap easily accessible remedies that actually work that might help until I find a way to get this fixed medically the way it needs to be. Again, I am sorry for the bleg and if I sound whiney but I am in pain and afraid.

Please follow the link to find out how you can help.

Even though I’ve always taken good care of my teeth, I know exactly what Zilla’s going through, and it’s awful. And yes, I brush several times a day, floss constantly, use the Water Pik a few times a week, get regular cleanings, and I still have problems. My most recent surgery was just a few months ago. It’s not a hygiene thing. It’s bad luck, or bad genes, or a combination of the two. Who knows? All I know is that we have a friend who is suffering and can use a little help.

Update: Just another note here. It doesn’t take much to help. If every person who reads this blog today gave only $2, even after the 75 cent PayPal fee, she would make enough money to get her teeth taken care of, and probably a little preventive care to go along with it.
