LapBand Surgery

I posted earlier regarding a friend of mine who weighs over 300 pounds. He is well aware of the strain that his weight is putting on his heart and body. He has considered lap band surgery and has recently talked about how it being a miracle that he is even alive.

He lives a full life, is very funny and smart. He has just been accepted to Columbia University in New York and loves to hike. However, if he doesn't do anything about his weight his heart may not be able to take much more. He has already endured numerous heart surgeries and as a result other health issues have begun to arise.

He is not lazy. He was born with a bad heart. His medical issues have attributed to his weight and he is now at risk for heart failure. Keep my friend in your thoughts and prayers.
