I first met Sarah online a couple years ago through her YouTube videos… and in person in 2010 at the first Vegas Meet & Greet. She was one of the main organizers along with Andrea. And she’s a sweetheart.(well, they both are!) I got to see her again, briefly, in Vegas last year. And she was even nice enough to give me a ride from my hotel to a meeting I was having just before leaving… saving me a HUGE cab fare.
As one of the organizers of the first M&G, Sarah was… in a round about way… instrumental in the formation of the WLSFA. As such, Sarah was awarded the inaugural grant for reconstructive surgery. She had her surgery with Dr. Katzen last September and at the time, they documented the whole thing because they were working on a pilot for a possible TV show… and that pilot is about to air.
The Real Skinny is going to air Monday, March 12th at 10PM EDT on TLC, and Sarah’s story is part of the pilot episode. If you have TLC, check it out… then let me know how it was, cause.. I don’t have cable. Anyways, here’s a bit of a preview.
