Follow Friday: @gloomchen

This isn’t your usual Follow Friday. I’m not telling you that you should follow my fito friend Summer (aka Gloomchen on twitter and fitocracy) although you should. Rather, I’m encouraging everyone who can afford to, to donate to her indie gogo campaign.

She’s trying to raise the money to get much needed surgery. She lost over 140 lbs and has kept it off for over ten years now. If you’ve ever scrolled through one of her fito workouts you know that she works HARD to maintain this loss. As you can imagine, weight loss of this magnitude has left her with some loose skin. This is both a physical and psychological burden. However, it’s not covered by health care so she needs to come up with enough money to cover the cost of the procedure and recovery. While she has been saving money for some time now she still needs $6, 500 (not counting donations already pledged). Please visit the link above to donate and to view her youtube channel. If you are unable to donate, please share the link with your social networks.
