Help Me Save My Best Friends Life.

I am actually trying to raise money for my best friend. My name is Amber and Misty and I have been best friends for over 30 years. We have been through a lot over the years and we have always managed to stay close regardless of life circumstances. She has always been there when I needed her regardless of the situation and has always been an awesome friend. Misty has always struggled with her weight even as a child. We have tried various diet and exercise programs over the years with some success but there always comes a point when we are at a stopping point and we can get no further. A few years ago Misty attempted to get bariatric surgery but right about the time she finished the 6 month program, her insurance dropped coverage for that particular type of surgery. Last year we hired a personal trainer, at which on the first day we saw him, she tore her meniscus running down a football field doing jumping jacks..have to give her credit because she was humping it thru the pain but since knee surgery, her weight has ballooned to the point where she can barely walk. As we all know there are various health issues associated with obesity and I fear that she will be susceptible to them all very soon if something doesn't give. Misty has been approved with her insurance company for dual switch, a permanent type of gastric bypass. Her current insurance will pay for half of the surgery but the hospital requires the $13,000 which is her half, to be paid before her surgery. Misty has three children from ages 10-15 years of age that need their mom and I need my bestfriend. Please help me save my best friends life. Shes the only one I have.

Thank you,

Amber
