Lynette Smith | Jaw cancer

Seed of Hope, Jaw Cancer
“In May 2006 I went to the dentist because a lower tooth had turned sideways. The tooth was removed. After that, all of my teeth turned sideways, and I found out in July that a tumor was the cause.

Dr. Yuen was my reconstructive surgeon, and Dr. Stack is my head and neck oncologist. The tumor and my lower jaw were removed, and it was reconstructed with a bone from my leg. Now people tell me they can’t even see anything was done.

Cancer support groups really helped me. There are times you want to give up, but you just have to pray for strength to get through it all.”
