Overweight Man Fears for His Health, Asking for Community Help

A 23-year-old Livermore man is battling weight problems and is seeking help.

We received this YouTube video from several readers. Is there anything we, the Livermore community, can do to help this young man?

Patch readers say the man's name is Robert Gibbs and lives in town. If you have his contact information please e-mail me at kristofer.noceda@patch.com.

Let us know any ideas you have on how to help this man in the comments section below and we'll see what we can do on our end. Thanks.

@ Anonymous - I thought the same thing about his eyes. His eyelashes are so long!

i just hope robert does well with whatever hope he gets-i'm sure this has to be something that will need pyschological counseling to go with the weight loss.instead of using drugs or alcohol to numb the pain he has the food for comfort-believe me i know the pain
