Coming up on April 14th, Sheri and the team at Ideal Diet Center are holding a very special fundraiser for Chad "Kickstand" Lucas to help him get a new prosthetic leg.

Chad was diagnosed with Fibrosis Sarcoma Cancer when he was 3 years-old resulting in the amputation of his left leg. Due to having limited mobility Chad has struggled with his weight over the years.

But recently, Chad has lost over 200 lbs and is going strong but in order to reach his goal weight by mid-April this year and he is in desperate need of a new prosthetic leg due to his weight loss.
