Usually, Amber would only be able to get around places by riding a mobility scooter. And also, the only time she would leave their home is to eat more food with her boyfriend, Rowdy.
After realizing that she already had enough of her unhealthy lifestyle, Amber decided to seek help from Dr. Younan Nowzardian. Although, the doctor’s location is far from their home, the whole family supported her decision and moved to Houston, Texas for a while.
