Default Surgery

I'm pretty close to applying for funding to have surgeries to remove my PWS

this has been years in the making to get to this point, disappointments and atleast one complete denial for funding

its alot of money i am applying for. I'm not gonna be surprised if its denied but it will definitely suck. I will be genuinely surprised if its granted ! probably bawl my eyes out

time will tell
