Medical Expenses for Gastric Bypass Surgery

Hello, I am 600Lbs. I have suffered with Morbid Obesity from childhood and have tried the conventional means of weight loss for years. I am 47 years old now and I am just tired and fedup of not being mobile, not being able to work and make my living or do my business and be successful all because I cannot get around. I always have to depend on someone to bring me this or bring me that, My wife, my mother, my son or the very few friends that I have. My surgery in my country, Trinidad and Tobago is costing me $17000.00 USD. I am asking you to help me raise this money to save my life. I show the video to give you an idea of what I face. I have faith that God would help me with your help to be victorious over this condition.
Thank you for your support
