Just want to share this interesting tragic story with you all!!! Renee Williams(a 29-year-old mother of two), from Austin, Texas, has became the heaviest person ever to have gastric bypass surgery earlier this year after ballooning to nearly seventy stone.

Renee was classified as super-morbidly obese at the age of 12. She was married by the age of 15 and had her first child, Mirina, at 16 weighing 30 stone. She had grown to a massive 35 stone by the time she had her second daughter Mariah.

In 2003, she was hit by a drunken driver in an accident that left her unable to walk because her leg was crushed. She became bedridden and began eating even more. Renee piled on more and more weight and by 2007 she was nearing 70 stone.
She begged doctors to perform the operation when she became so large that she couldn't hug her two children.
"I understand the risks but I am not going to make it if I don't have the surgery," Renee said at the time.

"I want to be able to care for my daughters and see them graduate high school."
The operation was successful and Renee lost four stone due to her reduced stomach capacity before dying of a sudden heart attack 12 days later.
