Alison Braun | Lifeline WA Ambassador
Alison became a contestant on season three of the reality TV show The Biggest Loser in 2008. It was not for fame or fortune but for the desire that maybe she might get control over the one thing that had controlled her life for so many years; her weight. When she applied to be on the show, she weighed 120kg. Soon after filming, Alison tragically lost her husband, Robert, and father of their three children, when he died by suicide in November 2008. There have been many ups and downs over the years, however, like on The Biggest Loser, Alison did not allow these challenges to defeat her. Alison has become an inspiration to many, not only in weight loss but in the way she has gracefully and humbly continued to be a positive voice in the community.
