A mum bagged free breast reduction surgery after fundraising for the op.
Kelly Michaud, from Harrogate, Yorkshire, battled with acute back pain and forked out a fortune on bras with added support.
She slimmed down by two stone in a bid to ease her aches, but the excess skin left her with further difficulties.
Despite her struggles, the 26-year-old couldn’t get the £6,000 procedure to reduce her H-cup breasts for free on the NHS.
So she turned to the British public to help her fundraise for the life-changing surgery.
Thankfully, her GoFundMe page caught the attention of cosmetic surgeon Dan Marsh who offered to carry out the reduction for free.
She told Stella: “That day I set up a GoFundMe page, setting my target at £10,000 and expecting nothing from it, but within days I'd had more than a hundred donations. I was stunned.
“Within a month, I hit my target.
“Just after hitting my target, completely out of the blue, I received an email from a cosmetic surgeon, Dan Marsh, who had heard about my story and offered to waive his surgery fees and operate for free at his clinic. I was over the moon.”
Kelly decided to donate the money raised on GoFundMe to a breast cancer charity.
She’s likely looking forward to her boobs attracting less attention when the op is complete.
Previously, Kelly told YorkshireLive: “When I was at school, I absolutely loved running and I was such a good runner, but all the lads used to sit up on the hill and watch and comment on my boobs afterwards. It made me feel so insecure and I just wanted to cover them up.
“People think, oh, well you’ve got boobs, you should be happy with the size you’ve got – I’d really want to have that size.
“I’m thinking no, you really wouldn’t."

She added: "I didn’t realise how many women suffer from this issue until I put the fundraiser up.
"I thought it was sort of quite a small thing, but since launching the fundraiser I’ve had friends I know saying they wish they could have the surgery too.
“You don’t realise how many women out there are going through this.”
