Mikey's Final Transformation
Organized by: Clark Hammersley
Mikey Bray has been one of my best friends since middle school. Ask anyone from the small town of Berryville, Va about him; it is very unlikely that whoever you talk to doesn't know who he is, and it is even more unlikely that they would have anything negative to say about him. He is one of the funniest, most kind hearted, genuine, and generous people I know. But as of recently, he has more than proven that he is one of the hardest working, and strongest peoole I know. He has been heavy set his entire life, weighing in at about 340 pounds at his heaviest in high school; However, ever since graduating, he has been on a mission to get down to a healthy weight and feel better than ever. Now he weighs in at 190 pounds, and is even in way better shape than I am myself! I could not be more proud of his determination and accomplishments, he is a true inspiration to anyone that thinks something is impossible or too difficult to accomplish. However, Mikey needs our help to get over the final hurdle of massive weight loss, it sometimes requires an expensive medical procedure called "Body Contouring Surgery" to remove and re-shape the skin from the stomach, arms, back, thighs, and any other necessary areas of the body. Even this can cause it's own list of complications that could be acoided if the procedure is done; For example, he literally just got out of the hospital from an infection. This procedure can cost up to $30,000, not to mention the costs of missing work and recovery. Mikey has done all the work on his own to get this far, now he just needs a couple helping hands to get that final push to where he really wants to be!
