One by one, more than 20 bariatric patients from Saint Thomas Rutherford in Murfreesboro, Tennessee walked the red carpet at Stones River Country Club.  One man used to be in a wheelchair.  One woman didn't have the confidence to be in front of people.  One woman used to be the former bariatric program coordinator at the hospital.  There was a married couple who had surgery together.  One is a father who had surgery and inspired his son to do the same.  Together, the father/son duo lost a combined 350 pounds!   Saint Thomas Rutherford was celebrating it's 10th year of the Bariatric Program with a celebration.   Friends and family came to support their loved ones who not only had life-changing surgery, but life-saving.
