    Marvin's Story

    “I was taking nine medications and knew that if I didn’t change my lifestyle, I would develop worse problems that could lead to an early death,” he recalls. After failing to lose weight by traditional diets and exercise, he decided to have bariatric surgery.

    “Surgery was the best thing I could have done,” Marvin reflects. “It gave me confidence in areas of my life that I never had before.” More than three years later, he has maintained his
    150-pound weight loss and says, “I am healthy and very thankful for the second chance that I have been given.”
