According to a study published in the July issue of Psychological Bulletin, overweight children are stigmatized by their peers as early as age 3 and even face bias from their parents and teachers, giving them a quality of life comparable to people with cancer.

# 1. Most Painful Moment

Craig: "When I was picked last for gym class."

: "After chemo, when I vomited up bile for nearly three hours."
# 2. When Did You Feel Left Out?

Craig: "My entire class had a pool party and I wasn't invited. I stayed at home and read comic books."

: "I missed summer vacation when my lungs collapsed and I had to spend July through August in the ICU."
# 3. Future Plans:

: "I plan on going to a comic book convention."
