"I don't like surgery at all. But in order to not be as depressed, I have to go through with it," Stacey said before the procedure. "With all the skin that comes away comes more of the sadness. I just want to get that time back that I lost. And somehow, through surgery, it feels like I'm getting time back."
Stacey still needs at least five more surgeries to repair her skin, and knee surgery.
