In 2016 I was diagnosed with brain cancer. The radiation caused severe damage to my jaw and I now have exposed bones.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had 15 tumors. I have done 18 rounds of radiation and 3 surgeries. I received chemotherapy daily , now once every 3 weeks since 2014.
After the radiation for my brain tumors, my gums were damaged. I have lost all my teeth and I do not have tissue on my gums. I am unable to chew food, I rely on Ensure drinks. I am in pain the entire day even though I take prescription pain medicine. I have seen 5 providers throughout the state of Washington for this condition, and none can help me. The only relief I have been given is mouthwash. I run out of this mouthwash sooner than it can be filled through WA Medicaid.
