Kelly Mason Becomes the Second Person to Die While Filming 'My 600-lb Life'

By

Of all of the people we've met through My 600-lb Life (and believe us, we've met many), no one's story has had more of an impact on us (or on Dr. Now, it seems) than Kelly's. She was super hard-working and motivated, but in the end her heart gave out despite her earnest efforts at recovering from obesity.

When we first met the North Carolina native, she weighed over 700 lbs, and was exhausted with the way her life was going. "I wish I had a different body," she said in the opening scene. "Every day is a bad day and every step is torture. Everything is hard to do, people don't understand that. And it gets worse every day."
