Hi! Thank you for stopping in and taking a look at my Gofundme page, my name is Jennifer Garcia, I’m 28 years old and married to my husband Anthony. So the short version of why I need your support, I’ve been struggling with an syndrome called PCOS, it’s a very common thing among women but for some it is a lot more difficult to deal with. For me it’s been a horrible struggle, mentally and physically. My doctor suggests weight loss surgery but our income alone can’t afford the surgery.
Now the long version:
I was born March 6 1989, premature weighing 1pound 6oz. Doctors told my mother that I was lucky if I lived past 48 hours, I showed them! Haha. But anyways back to it. When I turned 10 I found out my mother had leukemia it was a hard road watching her go in and out of the hospital, I was scared, confused and becoming very sad. Life seemed to get better until the age 16 I found out about my pcos, they told me to just watch what I ate and that it would fix itself, wrong! I did as they said and still I gained, stress grew and so did the weight. At age 18 I found out my mothers leukemia came back only this time worse, doctors did everything when I turned 23 my mother sadly passed away leaving me in a bad mental state, I gained a lot of weight from both depression and eating. Life felt useless.
Here I am 28 and still holding the same weight I gained from when my mother passed. Please I need your help, I wanna lose this weight so I can start accepting my mothers passing and becoming healthy again.
Even a $1 would truly help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart you will be helping me greatly.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (say “pah-lee-SIS-tik OH-vuh-ree SIN-drohm”) is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn’t treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease.
Most women with PCOS grow many small cysts camera.gif on their ovaries. That is why it is called polycystic ovary syndrome. The cysts are not harmful but lead to hormone imbalances.
due to the pcos it’s made it near impossible.
