A sweet DreamKeeper’s accomplishment in 2007
This is the letter from one of the clients at FRC who was part of the Cupcake catering event. Mari Johnson was attending and her husband is a well known dentist and unbeknown to us, she arranged for them to meet. You just never know where the trail of DreamKeepers may lead!!!
Dear Dr. Johnson,
I don’t even know where to begin thanking you. All of my life, my teeth have been crooked or broken. It started when I was about 10 years old and fell down on a rock at a place called Black Canyon in Ramona. After that I had them capped and about 2 years later I was playing hide and seek with my cousins and hid behind a rather heavy door. When my cousin came into the dark room, she pushed the door open hard and it hit me in the face, breaking my teeth even worse than before. I hated my face and wouldn’t even look in a mirror. I went all through Junior High and High School with broken, ugly teeth. I don’t even know how many days I would come home from school crying because other kids would tease me. I hate to laugh and even worse to smile. In 9th grade I remember doing an essay on 3 wishes. The three wishes I chose were 1. A cure for cancer (because my Aunt was very ill), 2. I wished for my Mom to get us kids back and 3. That we could afford to make my smile pretty. In the end I only got a D on my essay because I wouldn’t stand in front of the class and present it.
I just want you to know how you are truly making my dream come true, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
