The family and friends of Dewayne Flowers are raising money to help remove a large amount of excess skin left over from losing over 650 lbs.

"There are people with larger needs than me. I know. So, if you are here to help someone and you can only only one person, then I am not that person. Help some one else who is in much dire need than I am. Thanks." Dewayne Flowers won his battle with his weight. Now, after losing over 650 pounds, he is in great need of excess skin removal. Summary: I weighed approx 900lbs. I had surgery to help lose the weight. A little over a decade later, I am at my goal after struggling greatly with losing the weight even after surgical assistance. I am an active person who would love to be more active without this remaining hindrance. To read my full story you can read it at my first two GiveForwards that have closed. Go to or Last year I raised a little over 2K with GiveForward and with outside donations I raised the $6,000 needed to have the skin removed from my arms and chest. See photos. Dr. Cochran from Columbus Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery performed my operations and did an outstanding job considering what he had to deal with. He helped with a discounted procedure then and is now. Now I am raising the money needed for my abdomen, legs, groin and misc. areas he may see while I am under. So if you have donated in the past, I thank you and my family thanks you. If you can again, we greatly appreciate it. If you haven't donated and are curious, please read the links above and see the pictures and video. You will see the cause you are helping out. Thanks, Dewayne
