Jaws for Life 2020

When we first began helping Bonnie with dental needs she could only open her mouth approximately 1/3″ wide; s you can see in the pictures now she is able to open her mouth almost 2″ wide.  The surgery also improved a portion of Bonnie’s airway that was obstructed from the distortion.  These are Bonnie’s words to us after the surgeries:  “Before I had my surgery it was very difficult for me to eat.  Not only was it difficult but it was very embarrassing to eat in public.  Since I have had the surgeries, I can open my mouth wider to eat food.  I am so grateful to BPM for helping me.  I never liked to take pictures before but not I don’t mind having photos taken of me.  I am smiling more, too!”

The last step in phase 3 is to remove the braces which will soon be taking place.  Praise God for his provisions.
