Monique Fluker is more than just a Group Fitness Trainer, Certified Life Coach, and Professional Speaker. She is known for being a DRIVEN MOTIVATOR by assisting groups and organizations with their wellness goals. Her passion for helping people with their weight loss goals started with her struggle of losing weight.
Monique Fluker's life changed on September 17, 2010, when her mother informed her that her kidneys were functioning at only 14 percent and needed a kidney to survive. She immediately volunteered to be tested to see if she was a match. She wanted to give back the gift of life her mother gave her.
However, there were a few obstacles for Monique to overcome. The first obstacle was distance. Monique’s mother lived in Miami, Florida, and she resided in an Atlanta suburb. In November 2010, she traveled to Miami for testing, where she encountered another obstacle. Weighing in at 235 pounds, doctors told her that she must lose 20 pounds before she would be allowed to donate her kidney- and she had just over a month to make it happen.
Monique went home determined to lose 20 pounds in the short time frame to save her mother's life. It was a challenging feat during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, but she walked, ran, and worked out in the cold and rain every day, determined to lose those 20 pounds. Doctors and nurses were astonished when, 38 days later, on December 27, Monique returned 21 pounds lighter.
On March 3, 2011, Monique underwent to donate her kidney to her mother. Since the surgery, both Monique and her mother have received invitations to speak and provide their testimonies as living kidney donor and recipient.
