Marysville, 26th June 2004.

After batteling obesidy since the age of two years old with unkown underlying medical condition causing me to gain weight rapidly,  I have reached through much dedication and hard work my weightloss goal.  Unfortunetly,  that battle destoyed, scarred, and tattered my body.   My mother is a single parent and we are trying our hardest but surgery is $20,000 and not covered by insurance.  I will be undergoing surgery July 10th,  2015.  Every penny counts.  Thank you!
