TLC revisited the story of Dominique Lanoise with "600 Pound Mom: Race Against Time." She was still struggling with her weight, but wanted to get gastric bypass surgery to try and lose weight and save her life. The only problem was that doctors wanted to get her to 500 pounds before doing the surgery. Instead, Dominique continued to gain weight.

Believing her weight was killing her, doctors decided to go ahead with the procedure, despite her 689-pound mass. It was an incredibly risky surgery due to her size, but it was successful. Tragically, though, Dominique got sick and passed away just two weeks later.

"Dominique had great promise, and it was promised unfulfilled," her doctor said, while her six children simply said that they would miss the mother they had lost.
