Mom Is Stunned When Her Weight Balloons To 275 Pounds, All Because Of A 132-Pound Ovarian Tumor

Meet Mercedes Talamantes, a 51-year-old woman from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She had a habitual fear of visiting the doctor’s – for anything, and anyone. Unfortunately, this was the reason why her 5-year-old tumor started to interfere with her life.

Talamantes had originally weighed 143 pounds, which was a healthy weight for a woman of her size. However, due to her reluctance to seek proper medical help, her tumor continued to grow – until she was at a dangerous weight 275 pounds.
