When you meet Shawna today, her vibrant, outgoing personality shines through. It’s hard to believe that for many years she hid herself away because of her weight and related health problems.

After choosing to have bariatric surgery at Lancaster General Health and committing to a healthy lifestyle, Shawna was able to reduce the number of prescription medications she takes from 20 to 2, and her energy and enthusiasm for life returned.

“I can’t say enough about the staff at the Lancaster General Health weight loss program,” she says. “They let you know that you matter. They helped me every step of the way.”

Shawna credits a strong network of support groups for helping her to keep the weight off and stick to a healthy routine. She made the choice to get healthy and now she is off the sidelines, fully engaged in a busy life.
