My name is Kinika Christensen. I am 42 years old and I weigh 400lbs. I have been approved by my doctor for Gastric bypass surgery. This surgery will contribute to the improvement of my health and well being. I have been diagnosed with arthritis and the weight just makes it harder to move about like I should. Im too young for this. I refuse to continue on this way. I’m begging for the down payment cost of my surgery $6,000. This is the portion my insurance won’t pay. I do not qualify for Obama Care or Medicare so forget about the state helping. I want to get this done before my health gets any worse. It would be nice to take more than a few steps without being so tiered an in pain. I don’t have any problem with providing proof of my needs or current health situation if needed. My situation is somewhat desperate and I’ve run out of other options. Thank you for your consideration.
