As I draw nearer and nearer to my goal weight, it’s becoming clear that my loose skin isn’t going to magically retract on its own. I realized this over a year ago, and I started a savings account for the sole purpose of putting aside money for surgery to have the excess skin removed. I’ve now seen two plastic surgeons, and it’s clear that the cost for this is beyond my means, so I’m writing to ask for your help.
Some readers have already donated or have pledged to donate directly to my surgery fund either in person or via PayPal. Others have been so helpful in sharing my story and my cause with their friends. If you could do either, I would be grateful.
If you would like to donate to the surgery fund, the most convenient way is through PayPal. Click this link or hit the Donate button at the very bottom of this page to be taken to the secure PayPal site, where you can make a donation using a credit card or bank draft. If you prefer to pay with check, email firstname.lastname@example.org for my mailing address. Any help you can provide is appreciated.
If you would like to support my surgery fundraiser in ways other than through donation, I encourage you to share my story with your friends and family who might be able to help out. Share a link to this page on Facebook. Encourage your network to contribute. If each of my readers encouraged 4 friends to donate $10, the surgery would be fully funded.
Whether you can help or not, I appreciate you being on the journey with me, and I wish you the best!
