Elora Harre Will Fly To U.S. On The Kindness Of Strangers For Skin Surgery After Dramatic Weight Loss

Elora Harre is a 21 year old weight loss blogger who managed to turn her life around and  lose 120 pounds over the course of 2 years. She took herself from a size 24 to a 14 while documenting the journey on her Facebook page, The Shrinking Violet. harre3 This dramatic weight loss left Harre carrying a great deal of extra skin all over her body. After consulting a plastic surgeon at Christchurch Hospital in New Zealand, she was told they did not have the resources available to help her. harre This disappointing news inspired Harre's sister, Lydia, to start a Give A Little fundraising page in the hopes of raising enough money to cover the costs of private surgery. Thanks to some great media coverage and Harre's 20,000 Facebook followers, the donations poured in and Beverly Hills doctor, Cat Begovic, has agreed to waive her usual $11,000 fee for a full frontal abdominoplasty surgery. Now the procedure will cost $6,800 US for hospital fees and all the after care with the remaining money raised going toward accommodation and flights. harre2 Harre knows that the recovery will be long and difficult. She has to remain in the U.S. for three weeks following the procedure. But she knows with the help of her supporters, she can make it through. "It'll be like having a taste of home when I'm over there. All my followers are so important to me, and everyone's so supportive and excited for me. People can come out of surgery and be quite emotional, people wonder if they've done the right thing but I know if I get down, they'll be there." I can't wait to see how she's doing after her surgery later this month! Source: Daily Mail Do you follow us on Instagram?
