Darren and Danielle Ashbeck knew they wanted kids someday. Their obesity, however, created health challenges such as sleep apnea and difficulty managing type 1 diabetes that left them wondering whether they’d ever be able to take care of a child.
That motivation, along with a comprehensive bariatric surgery team at Marshfield Clinic Health System, led them to undergo a life-changing surgery together. The hard work, recovery and continued dedication is paying off. The Ashbecks now have a brand new outlook on life and are leading healthier, more active lives than they ever thought possible.
Watch their inspiring story.
