We can’t get over how brave 12-year-old Alexis Shapiro is!
This redheaded Texas cutie had a condition known as craniopharyngioma - a rare brain tumor that didn't ever allow Alexis to feel full which led to her hypothalamic obesity. In just 2 years, Alexis gained over 150 pounds!
Her life was at stake and her parents turned to their insurance company to help with Alexis’s gastric bypass - a necessary surgery that would save her. The company REFUSED!
