Edward Lowe is the one man in the world who Colton Lowe looks up to more than anybody else, and that person is Colton’s father.
The two have a strong connection due to the fact that Edward is the one who taught Colton all he knows about automobiles, which is a pastime that they both enjoy to this day.
Colton, 23, found out in February that his father had been diagnosed with Stage 4 liver failure. As soon as he heard the news, he began to formulate plans on how he might assist his closest buddy.
He responded by saying, “I was like, I can contribute right?” “How much do you weigh?” the [doctors] asked. I asked whether or not it was significant.
They said that in order to donate, your body mass index (BMI) must be between 18 and 32, so i performed the math, and it turned out that I was 30. I said yes.” Colton was happy to hear that, but if all of this had occurred a year ago, things would have been quite different.
Colton tipped the scales a t 478 pounds in April of 2021. After working on a hot rod with his father for a number of months, he came to the conclusion that he needed to undergo weight reduction surgery.
Colton has lost about 300 pounds in the last year since he began his weight loss journey.
After losing a significant amount of weight, Colton saw a significant increase in his self-confidence. Aside from that, he is feeling better, but the most important thing is that he is now in a position to offer the gift of life to his father.
The news that Edward had a donor who was a perfect match came to the family only a few days before Father’s Day. As a result, it is possible that Edward may have a liver transplant in the near future.
However, if the operation is successful, his son is prepared to give his father a portion of his own liver so that his father might get a transplant from a living donor.
It’s safe to assume that Edward is pleased that his kid is improving his health. As for Colton, the decision to become his father’s liver donor was an easy one for him to make.
Given all that has transpired, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that Colton’s choice to have weight reduction surgery this time last year was not a random act of fate. Because of this, he was able to give his father more years of life.
