My beautiful friend Yvonne went in for a bariateic surgery last year. Through the coaching a doctor, she was convinced that she was too heavy and needed a surgery to remove a small portion of her stomach. This alone was absurd since she only weighed about 220. Following the guidance of a doctor she had the surgery done to help reduce her weight. During this surgery the doctor removed too much of her stomach! This caused her to vomit even water! Because she was unable to keep anything down (food or otherwise) she has been in and out of hospitals with infection after infection and revision surgery after revision surgery. 

 Now weighing in at only 120 pounds and no stomach left ( because it had to be completely removed!) she faces another revision surgery on 2/10/14. 

The worst part is even though all these surgeries and expenses where the fault of the first surgeon... She still has to pay co pays for each hospital stay, surgery, doctor recheck, etc. needless to say, she can no longer afford the co pays especially since she can't work because of the botched first surgery. 

Not only has she been affected by all the hospital stays but her two wonderful children have also been affected emotionally. They are scared for their mothers life. No child should have to worry about their parent. 

I am asking for help for these wonderful people! Before Yvonne was ill she was always the first person to help ANYONE who needed it. And now she needs help! Please help me take away atleast one worry from her! Please donate something towards her surgeries. Anything large or small! All help is welcomed!
