Tailoring My Skin Suit

Hi all!

As many of you know, I have recently lost over 165 pounds! As a result of a gastric bypass in June of 2014, I have undergone a massively successful transformation and its time to begin the next step in my journey. I now find myself in the interesting position of living in a drastically over sized skin suit. How bad could it be?

The next step is to remove the excess skin that has not recovered. I estimate approximately 15 pound of skin now lives on my now much smaller frame. Unfortunately, my only recourse is a full body overhaul which will involve multiple reconstructive surgeries. Insurance does not recognize most, if not all, of it as needed. This is considered 'cosmetic' at this time.

Which is why I am coming to you all. I cannot, on my own, afford the necessary procedures, which have an associated cost of approximately $30,000.00. So, while I do not like needing to ask for help, I am asking anyway.

Many of my friends and family have asked how they can help... and here it is. Any amount helps over time. I do not need to know who you are or how much you choose to share with me. I am deeply grateful for any support; financial, friendly, prayers, or any other ways you wish.

Thank you for reading and everything everyone has and will do for me.

With love and gratitude,

Kate
