Along with motherhood, Shannon started putting on weight and developed related health issues that were dampening her creative spirit. An encounter with a supportive friend changed everything.
After losing 27 pounds on her own, Shannon realized she needed a little more assistance and investigated weight-loss surgery through the Healthy Weight Management & Bariatric Surgery program at Lancaster General Health. She decided sleeve gastrectomy was the best option for her. Shannon is now living life to the fullest and looking forward to the future.
