My Life Changing Surgery

Hello my name is Tamy Cohen. I'm 38 years old and I am raising money for my bariatric surgery and soclean cpap medical device which I will need in order to have surgery. I have always been overweight since I was 7 years old and I've suffered from sleep apnea since I was even younger than that, which was one of the many contributing factors to my weight gain. I've been made fun of,looked at strangely, looked over and down upon my whole life yet through it all I've had amazing friends and family to get me through. I've always been the type of person who cares more about taking care of others needs before my own but I'm trying to take care of myself now. I am a dental hygienist but only part time unfortunately since it is extremely hard for me to get hired due to my weight. I've been on countless interviews for years that seem to go great yet I'm never the one to be hired. Aesthetics are very important to people in my field and to the rest of the world unfortunately. I've recently been diagnosed with a herniated disc and high blood pressure aside from the sleep apnea, and it's becoming harder and harder for me to exercise or move around. I need to turn my life around and I would love to be alive to have a normal life with a husband and children someday! Im in dire need of medical intervention and I'm asking for help from friends and family or even strangers. Please help me get the surgery I so desperately need and deserve. My life depends on it. Thank you.
