This is the Surgery for Lola fund. All funds raised will be going towards the cost of gastric bypass surgery. Thank you for your help!

I have been married to my wife for 10 years. We're an older couple (42&41) with an 11 month old who has Spina Bifida. My wife is a stay at home mom and currently experiencing problems due to being overweight. Unfortunately, this is a hereditary thing. My wife has done everything - worked out, tried diets, pills.. everything. She joined a Biggest Loser class and injured her knee - in fact the diagnosis was a torn meniscus.

To the point, my wife needs gastric bypass surgery (ie; lap band) and unfortunately the cost is more than we can afford. ($16,000) Insurance doesn't cover any part and I feel like this is the last hope. If she doesn't get the surgery, the future will be riddled with issues. She'll end up wheelchair bound, with diabetes and pulmonary issues, etc. Please help - I just want my son to have a mother that can be involved with his life. We need her to be here and I know all she wants is to be able to live a healthy life. I appreciate anything you can do!
