Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead"One hundred pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids, and suffering from a debilitating auto-immune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror, he saw a 310 lb. man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health."
