Jo-Ann, Huntington

Jo-Ann Raia, an 82-year-old retired Huntington elected town official, has suffered from severe wound infections for a few years. What started as a blister from a pedicure, quickly turned into an infected wound that required immediate attention. Her primary care doctor recommended she see a wound specialist, so she made an appointment at Mather’s Wound Treatment Center.

Cindy, Manorville

I suffered with obesity for more than 20 years.  My kids were getting older and I realized it was time for me to get my own life since I had lived my life for them for the last 20 years.

The gastric sleeve surgery changed my life in so many ways.  I’m a different person.  I’m more confident walking into a room.  I’m more open to making new friends and new relationships.  People look at you differently when you’re morbidly obese.  They treat you differently.
