RJ Boling Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Organized by: Carol Mayfield
My son is 30 years old. He is a single parent of 2 children, Gracie age 3 and Xander age 9.He is morbidly obese to the extent that his health is failing. He has been trying to get this surgery for 2 years. He has collected data, followed a diet plan and been to many doctors who have all recommended the Gastric Sleeve. Last year he suffered a mini stroke and the doctors warned him that if he didn't get his weight under control, he may not be here to see his kids grow up. I know God has a plan for my son. I know it was meant for him to get this surgery. He has many health issues which prevent him from doing much physical activities, so exercising is almost impossible, at least until he sheds some weight. He has exhausted every way he can think of to make this surgery happen. He finally was able to get insurance and because it was noted in his medical file as needed surgery, they will cover the surgery...but he must pay out of pocket $2500.00. 2 divorces has taken a toll on him financially and there is no way he can get the money. He works full time, but with raising 2 children he can't find the money in his budget to have this life altering surgery. So I decided to try a fund raiser. If you can find it in your heart to change the life of a single Dad, so he can continue to raise his children, I will be forever grateful. He has a blog called http://www.bigfatloserblog.com/ where he has been writing for awhile. Please go there and get to know him and if it tugs at your heart even a little, please help him. This will change my son's life and his childrens' lives forever.
