My name is Kayla Butcher and I am looking for any help I can get to allow me to get my excess skin removal surgeries done.
Let me tell you a little about myself, I am 24 years old and I work full time at a call center . I had Roux en y gastric bypass surgery on February 8th, 2016. I topped the scale at 376.5 pounds before surgery. I am down to 191 pounds. I am not done yet. I am so incredibly proud of myself and how far I have come.
Unfortunately even after losing 185 pounds I am now left with excessive loose skin that will need surgery to fix. It is considered a cosmetic surgery and is not covered.
It is very emotionally difficult to deal with, finally being freed from the weight I've carried since I was a child but still feeling trapped inside a body that constantly reminds me of the lifetime of pain and struggle. Wearing clothes is more difficult and being intimate is even more so daunting than before. Things like wearing swimsuits. I have started saving here and there myself but need some help.
I left a very unhealthy home environment at 16 years old and have been doing it on my own since. I am momma Bear to the rest of my siblings and friends. I do all I can on a regular basis to help others in need and I am now asking for some help in return. No one's life is easy that's for sure, however I have struggled to get by at this point and it would take me years to save for these surgeries on my own. I have become a really big inspiration for alot of people and keep being asked to make a go fund me so people can help out, any donations are greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much, sending all my love from this funky haired lady!
