Almost finished

Growing up I was always a hefty fellow. I turned to food to eliminate the many tragedies that existed within my family. Drugs, violence, and homelessness were commen things growing up. My parents were in and out of prison, still are in prison, leaving me and my brothers to be cared for by others.  I was practically raised by the East Wenatchee community, a true product of what can happen when people come together and help someone. I had lots of friends, But I never felt right with myself. I eventually peaked at 365 pounds, and decided that I was done being a victim. So I began a weightloss expedition during my college years, and over the last 4 years I have lost 130  pounds. However losing that amount of weight has left me with a disgusting amount of loose skin in my torso. I would like to have it removed, but even though it poses a future health risk my insurance will not help. I recognize that there's a sense of vanity to all of this, but Its been nearly 5 years and the skin isn't going anywhere. This is quite literally an opportunity to make a dream come true. I'll be getting married soon and it's not currently feasable for me to spend this much money on a surgery. So I'm swallowing some pride and hoping there's enough people out there with some spare change to make this happen. Please help me live the life I've earned!
