Nathaniel Lose to Live Campaign

To some of you I am Nathaniel and to others I am Coach Pooh, whoever I am to you listen closely because I need your help!

The past 5 years I've battled weight loss. At my highest weight I was 508lbs and at my lowest weight in the 380's. However I've been unsuccessful in keeping the weight off.

At a September Dr. appointment my physician recommended to me that I have a gastric bypass due to growing health concerns related to morbid obesity. I told her that I wanted to try to lose the weight on my own and I set out to do so. I soon realized that I could not do it alone and that this was a disease I needed help with.

On Tuesday, November 26, 2013 my surgery date was set for December 20, 2013. I will be having a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure which will result in my new stomach pouch being the size of my thumb. This will limit the amount of calories I am able to consume resulting in weight loss and better health.

My Insurance company has approved me for surgery but the insurance company does not cover 100% of my expenses associated with the surgery. I'm hoping you can help me to reach my goal of $1500 by Tuesday, December 4th, 2013. Your contribution will be used to cover my pre and post operation expenses associated with the surgery.

I thank you in advance for your contributions in any amount, your listening ear, and your willingness to share my story with others.A big THANK YOU you to everyone that contributed to my Lose to Live Campaign. Yes, I have met my goal and I am very excited about that. Feel no obligation to give at this time, but if you should do so, your contribution will be used for pre and post op expenses.

I appreciate your time, your listening ear, and your willingness to share my story with others!
