Why do you need a surgery?
"I am 31 years old I am a type 1 diabetic I have had it since I was 3 years old so 28 year now! It's affected my weight since I was a child with food and insulin being a problem it took me a long time to get the eating habits correct. It has become hard for me too walk because of my weight, I also find it hard to wash myself properly and even wipe my self in the bathroom! I suffer from depression from all of this. I am on medication for high blood pressure, cholesterol, depression, anxiety and eye drops. I feel hopeless and I have tried everything to loose weight and get back on track I feel the gastric bypass would help by getting my weight down and that will bring my glucose level down and reduce my insulin intake my overall health will improve."
Why cannot you pay for this surgery and need financial help?
"My morning blood glucose levels are very high and cannot be controlled because of the weight but I need to take alot of insulin to bring them down which causes me to gain more weight. I have lost vision in my right eye because of the morning glucose levels which caused me to become unemployed."
