2020 Grant Recipients 

I am so much better. I even appreciate the small things like crossing my legs, picking up items, tying my shoes, or putting them on. I have less pain from my MS. You guys are truly life savers. My blood pressure readings are normal. Thank you sooo sooo much! Blessing to all!” ~ Sandra

WLSFA National Conference in Las Vegas 2022

The Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America (WLSFA.ORG) invites you to join us at the Westin Lake Las Vegas March 11-13th, 2022. Your participation at this annual fundraiser allows the WLSFA to make a difference in the lives of people with no access to the medical treatment with the need to overcome the disease of obesity. The money raised at this event will fund grants and save lives! Together we can look forward to an event that will be life changing for attendees and those that benefit from the gathering most – our Grant Recipients.  More Details

The greatest source of hope and help comes from the compassion of people who themselves were hostage to the diseases of morbid obesity.
