Dominique Lanoise, the star of “600-Pound Mom: Race Against Time” quietly passed in March of 2012. Lanoise was a 41 year old daughter, sister, niece, relative, friend and single mother of six. Lanoise passed from complications due to her weight of 625 pounds and her addictions to Haitian food.  Now by no means am I judging her because I honestly do not judge however I sincerely wish that someone…anyone could have helped could have helped her. Often people just need cheerleaders or motivators in their life to accomplish that one life changing goal. When I read this story I could not help but think if Oprah or Will Smith could have helped with this if they had known. They have done it in the past. Check the facts.

More importantly my heart immediately went out to her six children. Is there something(s) in place to care for them financially and health wise to ensure their success? Life is too short. Let’s keep them in our thoughts.
