WOW! The giveaway of ALL giveaways!

"The Live My C.H.O.I.C.E. contest."     www.LapbandChoiceContest.com

The folks over at Allergan (the company that makes the Lap Band) have a new contest as part of their CHOICE Campaign.  Through this contest, three inspirational people will receive a LAP-BAND® System procedure and one year of follow-up care, compliments of Allergan, Inc. (surgeon will be of the winners’ choosing).


Information about the contest:
  • Currently, approximately 15 million Americans are 100 pounds or more overweight; however, only 1% of the clinically eligible population is being treated through weight-loss surgery.
  • According to the ASMBS (American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery), about 25% of potential weight-loss surgery patients are denied insurance coverage three times before getting approval, with 60% of these patients reporting worsening health during the waiting period.
How to Enter: To enter the contest, all you have to do is submit a short essay or video about how your weight has impacted your health and your life, and why you think the LAP-BAND® System may be the tool to help you achieve your weight-loss goal. A family member or close friend may also submit a story on someone’s behalf.
