Dental implants

The aim of my project is to raise money to enable me to get dental implants after being left with teeth problems from being attacked.

Unfortunately this project was not successful.

At the age of 21 years old my husband was walking home from town and was jumped and attacked by three men. He was very lucky to be here today as I know it could of had a completely different outcome but unfortunately now he has a constant reminder. He lost his front two teeth in the attack and the NHS won't fund implants, I have gone down every dental route possible and every route on the NHS has failed. 

Every day he is reminded of the attack and can't smile in photos because of it, this attack was 7 years ago now and we are still reminded of it. The memory of this attack has lead to depression and having implants will help him on the road to recovery.
