Hayley's Weight Loss Surgery

Hi!  My name is Victor Franklin.  My wife, Hayley, is the most amazing person I've ever met.  As our friends and family know, we are newlyweds!  Yay!  Something we've both struggled with is our weight.  I am so proud of her because she's done so well on this current plan.  She is working on getting approved for the gastric sleeve (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleeve_gastrectomy)
and has been working with a surgeon in Fort Worth for several months now.  She has almost met the weight loss requirements and has met all the other requirements.  

Now, here is what we need help with.  She's going to be out of work for two weeks, or more if necessary, while she recovers from the surgery and gets used to her new eating restrictions.  She is only a temp at her job and doesn't have any kinds of benefits, such as FMLA or PTO.  On top of this, as our friends and family know, we jave had quite a rough year and it has really prevented us from being able to save.

We need help in making sure we can afford our bills due to her lost wages during her surgery and recovery period.  We also will need to pay for prescriptions, protein powders, vitamins, supplements, etc.

This will mean so much to the both of us and I cannot explain in words how thankful I am for all of the love and support given to us.  Even if you can only give a small amount, it would mean the world.  Please share this on social media.  We promise to keep everyone updated and will let everyone know as soon as a surgery date is set.  You can follow her journey at www.becomingaloserblog.wordpress.com

Surgery is scheduled for December 23 @ 7:15am! Hayley is already down 37lbs and cannot wait to get to the next step in this journey!
