Hortense Says Cooper Saved Her Life Twice

Hortense Brignola couldn’t walk 50 feet to her mailbox without getting out of breath. She couldn’t tie her shoes, reach down to pet her dog or help family during celebrations because of her obesity. When she finally made up her mind to have bariatric surgery, she didn't realize that her weight wasn't her only battle. Pre-surgery screening revealed she had lung cancer. Now, a year later, she is cancer free and 165 pounds lighter.
