Patient Testimonial: DeAna Manns' Story
"This was a program I did for Mother's Day, several years ago. This was a size 30 dress when I weighed 350 pounds. I still have the hat. I won't give it up, that was my mother's. But, to see where I was there and see where I am now… miles, miles of difference. And I'm thrilled."
