I am Aleksandra from Vilnius. I have had problems with my teeth and jaw for a very long time. I have worn all kinds of plates, which did not always help. I have had a bad bite since I was a child, but I always thought that everything would be fine, I would just get braces, suffer with them for a few years and everything would be fine. But as the lower jaw grew, so did the growth, and when I was 14 years old, my doctor said that there was nothing more she could do and that she would have to operate. I won't lie, but I almost cried on the way home. The doctor I've been seeing all my life, who magically fixed all my problems, has now told me she can no longer help me. It was really frustrating and I won't lie, it still is.

When I found out that it was possible to help me, I was incredibly happy, but unfortunately, the happiness did not last long. Desperation set in after learning the cost of the treatment. 11,000.00 Euros must be paid for facial, occlusal and respiratory analysis, diagnostics and orthognathic surgery.

 My first idea was to find a job. But who would hire and pay a teenage girl well? Another was to get financial support from people. I've never liked asking my parents or friends for money, or basically anything, so it took me a long time to force myself to finally turn to Face Foundation. I still feel bad asking for help, but I have no other choice. So I would be very grateful if you decided to support me financially. Thank you in advance.
