3 to 1 Meet Cole Prochaska

Donation protected
Three to One. I once weighed as much as 3 men and now, I am one person. I once weighed more than 585 pounds (that was as high as my scales would read). It's very hard to share a shirtless picture but I've come so far! I know it is hard for some of you to look at. People didn't believe in me, but I believed in myself. I have never used steroids or had gastric bypass surgery…..this is my determination to reclaim my life and live as others do. Over 361 pounds down, and I'm not done yet. You can do anything you put your mind to. I hope my story can be an inspiration to others trapped in this same type of situation. Now I need your help.
My weight goal has been reached but my life is not complete, and it will not be complete until I can get rid of this excess skin. I must tuck extra skin in my pants and still wear loose clothing to conceal the flab. I have been heavy since I was 6 years old and at 38, I have never walked on a beach without a shirt on and always avoided pool parties. I’m still trapped. Due to this extra skin. I’m asking for financial help. I need to get the surgeries to remove the extra skin and help with financing while out of work recovering and travel costs. I had no idea of the cost until now. I first estimated $60K but now I know I will have no less than three surgeries and will have to stay in California 4 weeks after each surgery. I have to think bigger and I regret that, but I'm increasing my goal to $100,000. I truly appreciate each and every donation I am receiving.
