A lot has happened in the life of Andrea Grant since her journey
as a bariatric surgery patient at St. Joseph’s Hospital Health
Center was profiled in the Winter 2011 Caring Connection magazine.
She married Daquan Thomas in April 2012, and gave birth to a
6 pound, 15 ounce baby girl, Gabrielle, on
July 3, 2013. Getting married and having a
family were significant factors in her decision
to have weight loss surgery. Overall, she has
lost 143 pounds since her surgery in June
2011, exceeding her original goal of 140.
Having since moved to Pennsylvania, Andrea
and her husband Daquan, are shown here
visiting the New York State Fair in August
with their daughter, Gabrielle. To learn
