Teretha’s heartbreaking story has more than a hint of irony, along with the usual elements of tragedy and sadness.

She has now become so obese that she is unable to move around on her own—Teretha is confined to her bed and dependent on her family for her every day care and needs.

Understandably, given her current health and weight, Teretha’s terrified to go under the knife—and fearful she won’t survive surgery—but, she’s willing to risk everything rather than continue to wallow and eat herself to death.
However, Teretha first has to make it to the hospital—and that's no mean feat for a bedridden 700Lb woman.
It takes a whole team of hunky fireman to hoist her up off of the bed, haul her into the back of a waiting car and transport her to the hospital.
But, that’s just the start of Teretha’s weight loss journey—will she be able to continue further, on her own steam?
