Ashley (2006)

Ashley knows what it takes to accomplish a goal - and she can prove it. She was referred to Geisinger's Janet Weis Children's Hospital to be evaluated for obesity after her weight led to a number of other health issues. Taking part in the Weigh of Life program at Janet Weis Children's Hospital gave her a chance to monitor her progress and discuss behavioral changes. Ashley now has a clean slate healthwise and says she feels much better - both physically and mentally.
