Controversial participant

27-year-old Schenee Murry from Indiana failed her diet and gained even more weight while trying to get approved for a weight loss surgery that can save her life.

Schenee skipped all of her doctor's appointments and required therapy sessions, blocked Dr. Younan Nowzaradan’s phone number, and quit the show.

Viewers of My 600-lb Life were shocked when Schenee lied to Dr. Nowzaradan about failing her diet after he found an empty pizza box at the hospital, but she continues to say she didn't eat it.

Cry for help

Now, Murry is trying to raise $50,000 to get the help she needs. She started with slamming Dr. Nowzaradan on Facebook, and then, she launched a Go Fund Me page, which earned $155. Schenee wrote:

Im raising this money for a great cause i was dragged to Houston Texas to get humiliated on national TV an i have been struggling every since for everything i have a lot of hopes an dreams an one is to get better i don't only have weight problems i have other health problems that's just over looked so im team schenee with a great husband God has blessed us this far.

Later, Schenee edited her post, adding that her 'true story was not told' due to 'heavy editing' on the show. The way how she intends to spend the $50,000 she is trying to raise is unclear.

Lost opportunity

Many people were outraged when Murry set out her page and took to social media to slam her for asking money after blowing her opportunity to lose weight on the show.

After she quit My 600-lb Life, Dr. Nowzaradan commented:

We provided Schenee with every possible resource and opportunity to lose weight and she failed to lose a single pound. Outside of a controlled environment she continued to gain the whole time.

He stressed that Murry made a choice to reject all the help she was offered, and now, she has to do everything on her own.
