Taking Back Chrissy

Chrissy has spent most of her life overweight. At the age of 6 she was already considered obese, by age 11 she was well over 300 pounds and by high school she topped the scales at over 450.

Today she starts her new journey at 514 pounds.
She was recently given the opportunity to take part in a full-time fitness camp in beautiful Southern California, but unfortunately this comes at a great cost. As an independent woman who has always worked incredibly hard despite her weight, she has been forced to leave her job and all her belongings back home in Washington state.... including her best friend Hero! She has had to make the choice between this tremendous loss or her life. I’m so proud to say she has chosen to live!

I invite you to give what you can to support her on this journey! Unfortunately, she is now without the means to cover her living expenses. Without her job, she is giving up her vehicle, medical insurance and the ability to provide herself with even the daily amenities. By contributing even a small amount you can help ease the stress of making ends meet while she focuses on saving her life... literally.  

She is a stunning young woman with a beautiful soul who has spent much of her life giving to others. I know she would never ask for help herself, so I’m hoping together we can give back to one of the most couragous women I know!

Please feel free to give what you can. Even if you can’t give, prayers and messages of encouragement are always appreciated! Please feel free to share this with your friends and family and spread the word.

We hope this incredible journey can help inspire and encourage all those who struggle with weight and body image issues.

Social media accounts will be linked soon so you can follow her progress in real time! Come back often for updates as we make our way through the coming months!
