About the WLSFA.ORG and the "Making A Difference" Bariatric Patient Conference and Fundraiser:
The WLSFA (Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America) is a 501(c)3 Charity. The mission of the WLSFA is to fund grants for medical treatments of obesity for people with no access to care. The WLSFA is 100% VOLUNTEER with no paid executives or staff. Powered by the support of fellow weight loss surgery patients, medical professionals and industry partners, together saved 23 lives of those who desperately needed bariatric surgery to survive. If you are a bariatric patient consider attending our annual fundraiser. Join hundreds of fellow WLS patients for three days of education, motivation, inspiration, and help the WLSFA save lives along the way! Paying it forward is always a good idea!
