Half Ton Mum is the story of the world’s heaviest woman, Renee Williams, a 64 stone, 29 year old mother of two who, in a desperate bid to save her life, undergoes major surgery. Bedridden Renee begged doctors to perform a gastric bypass operation when she became so large that she couldn’t hug her two children. The surgery is her last chance to live, but it carries a huge risk. Renee will be on the way to losing 50 stone, or she will die.
