Trim the Skin - Stage 2

Surgery - Stage 1 Completed

Thanks to all of you, I am now at home recoving from the first surgery to remove excess skin/etc. from around my mid-section. My surgeon (Dr. Lester Yen) did a fantastic job. I already feel so much better.

Surgery - Stage 2 Begins

I am still raising funds to complete the surgical aspect following my tremendous 300+ pound weight loss. I am not concerned with cosmetic procedures such as under arms, chest, etc. I am, however, very much still concerned with the excess skin on my legs as it is very uncomfortable and painful at times. I do not have an exact quote on the additional funds necessary for this procedure, but will once I have fully healed from this first one. We estimate the cost at approximately $4,000!

My family and friends (new and old) have already banded together  to raise over $5,000 to help me complete State 1 and that is very humbling. I love you all and although I have struggled with asking for help, I do need the surgery and I need help to pay for it. Please help if you are able. I promise to pass along the gift in the future when I am able. Thank you for your time, your consideration and your donations .
