Charles Strada

“I tell everyone that I have a second chance at life since having Gastric-Bypass surgery in November 2008. Dr. Amir Heydari told me that if I hadn’t had the surgery, I would have only lived one more year because my organs were beginning to fuse together. Now I have my life back. I can tie my shoes and walk to the other side of the room without being out of breath. People rely on me more because they know I can handle things now. I started my own lawn care business and just got married in 2012. I love to talk about my journey and I hope to inspire others to do it too. All the lifestyle changes were worth it!”
