2019 Grant Recipients 

I’ve struggled with my weight since getting pregnant with my 1st child at the age of 19.  My insurance has always excluded weight loss surgery.  I knew I had to do something about my weight, and I kept researching trying to find an organization that would help me get the surgery.  That is when I found the WLSFA. I am so thankful that I found them and was selected for the grant. I am one month post-op and I’m almost 40 pounds down and I’m so happy to be on the losers bench!

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