You are an incredibly beautiful woman. I have read your posts and I thank you for your kind words.
I did find some clinical trials specializing in barrett's esophogus in california- that may be of interest to you.
As for the dental care - that is much more difficult. What I can suggest is this: I have the new dentist make a report on his findings and take it back to the original dentist who made the dentures. See if they can adjust the dentures to fit properly. Yea, I know it is a long shot but it might be worth a try. Tell them you cannot wear them because they do not fit properly and never have. If you can at least get the top to fit - you will feel a LOT better.
One other thing I can suggest is PROSPER - it is a person to person loan site - which may be helpful instead of going through a bank. HOWEVER the interest rate may be higher, but you may have a better chance of getting approved.
Also have you checked into dental schools in your area? While I have never had any work done by them, some people have referred others to them - perhaps they can do a portion of the work... while a specialist does the rest.
I did a quick check and found the DEREN KOLIGAN CARE CENTER
Not only do they have a dental clinic , but they also have a GERD clinic that may be able to help with your Barrett's esophogus - it is right in fresno as well... I hope this helps..
