This is ELI's second chance of life fund.The fund will be used for Eli's medical cost and related expenses not covered by insurance.

HI my name is Elionay Guardiola but most call me Eli for short, I'm 37 yrs old and was told by my primary doctors that I'm morbid obese, and if i don't do something about it i will not live long enough to see my 3 daughters graduate college or walk them down the isle. i was diagnosed with chronic hypertension and high cholesterol. My Dr's. have been trying to control my weight and blood pressure with several types of medications but nothing seems to work Im starting to get an enlarged heart due to high blood pressure and my next fear is diabetes, which both my parents have. I'm not a very active person because of all this, I'm always tired and i hate feeling like this, i want to have this surgery called gastric sleeve resection which removes 60 percent of the stomach giving it the shape of a sleeve or tube. The Dr who wants to perform this surgery on me told me its the best recommendation for me. I thought about this surgery with my wife and kids and our best decision is to have it done. the only thing is that i would need 3 gran to get this done that's the only thing standing in between me and a new life so if anyone could find it in their heart to help please do, me and my family will be very great full. Thank you
