It’s been a very long time since Charity Pierce first appeared on My 600-Lb Life. She started her journey at 778 lbs and ended her Season 3 episode at 496. That’s a pretty significant weight loss!
But now, viewers are curious to learn more about the Iowa native’s whereabouts. Whatever happened to Charity Pierce after she left My 600-Lb Life?
Charity Pierce experienced success, but went on to have other health issues
Like many other My 600-Lb Life guests, Charity Pierce came to the show in search of help. She couldn’t stop eating and needed Dr. Now’s help in order to make healthier lifestyle changes.
Although she was once incredibly unhealthy, the program seemed to work for Charity. She was one of Dr. Now’s more successful cases on the show.
But what happened after the cameras stopped rolling?
Sadly, Charity went on to struggle with health issues. She keeps a public Facebook but hasn’t updated it since 2020.
“To update everyone.. I found out at Christmas time that I have kidney cancer. … So since Christmas I’ve had high anxiety and lots of panic attacks,” Charity posted on Facebook on March 22, 2020. “After lots of testing and a million doctor appointments they figured out the cancer was only in my kidney. The next step was to get my kidney removed as soon as possible before it had a chance to spread to other organs in my body. So on March 2 my kidney was removed. And now I’m recovering at home trying to heal. I just hope the future has something good in store“
Fortunately, it seems like the My 600-Lb Life star recovered
Charity’s last public post came from September 12, 2020. Although she didn’t say much about her cancer, it seems like she was doing much better. She even went back to work.
“Little bit of a life update. My moms away to better herself,” the TLC personality shared online. “She’s had some struggles but is doing great now. That’s as far as I’m going to comment about that. As far as me, I’m currently working as a CNA and back on my journey as I fell off the wagon for a minute. Here’s to a better future for the both of us.”
She uploaded a photo of herself looking pretty healthy. However, it’s important to remember that this was also the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. While Charity does look much healthier in this photo, she’s also probably incredibly tired as a healthcare worker.
“You look amazing girl. Keep up the good work,” one follower wrote.
“You should be very proud of yourself. Keep up the hard work. It’s worth it and you’re worth it,” another added.
Fans hope that Charity Pierce is still alive and well to this day. However, it’s tough to say exactly where she is in 2023 unless she chooses to give followers an update.
