As most of you know, Connor has worked extremely hard to lose and keep his weight off. He's lost 235lbs and keeps going to the gym everyday before work. It hasn't been easy for him.
Connor suffers from severe depression and anxiety. To the point that in 2016 he tried to take his own life by swallowing a full bottle of his anti depressants. He's worked extremely hard to get his mind and body healthy again.
Since then, he's worked out and even put a strict diet together by his own research. By doing this not only has he lost the weight but is now not taking any medication at all. Even cut caffeine out of his diet. At his heaviest he weighed 435lbs and is now 200lbs. We're so very proud of him and what he has accomplished. From being bullied his whole life because he was bigger and taller than the other kids to, to losing his #1 fan ( his grammie ) last May to cancer. He made a promise to her that he would keep pushing and every goal he makes will be in her honor. He certainly has kept that promise. Because he was so big and carried it in his stomach, he has loose skin he would like to have removed. Always getting the short end of the stick, he was excited to go to the appointment with the specialist. Once again though, he was disappointed to hear that the surgery will cost him $18,000. We want to do everything in our power to help him raise some if not all of the money for him.
For those who know Connor also knows he's not embarrassed or ashamed of his story but says it's a story of personal growth and success, and will help anyone that needs it. He works so hard and does everything for everyone else, I think it's time that Connor gets to complete his journey with our help.
I would like to personally thank all of you for reading just some of Connor's journey..
