Program Description

Event Details

When obesity became too heavy a burden to bear, would one man give into despair… or reinvent his world?

Dan Hawthorne anticipated death. After an innocent childhood relationship with food turned into a destructive adult habit, he dreaded seeing his 650-pound self in the mirror. But on his darkest night of the soul with his sinister inner voice berating him, the desperate man cried out to God, was heard, and formed a plan to redefine his image, his health, and his life.

Dan will speak and read from his survivor memoir The Giant In Me. There will be an opportunity to purchase his book and ask questions.
