Every Journey Is Special
Only you have lived your story, and we aspire to provide a platform for a wide selection of your incredible efforts, the challenges you have overcome, and the successes of having Bariatric Surgery.
We Are Not Alone
When you share your WLS journey and how it has impacted you, you show people they are not alone. Your story can show that overcoming any WLS difficulties is possible and raises the opportunity for connection.
BN Healthy is committed to delivering a safe community to share your story. We strive to break down the stigma around obesity and Bariatric Surgery with ethical, individual storytelling.
