The mother of Britain’s heaviest man, Lisa Holton, is struggling to find a place to accommodate her son, Jason Holton, to complete the cremation ceremony as he would have preferred.

Jason died at the age of 33 after suffering from obesity and its health complications, weighing 317 kg, which caused him great complications even after his death.

The mother indicated that she would have to bury him instead of burning him, and this requires large financial costs because she needs a double piece of land for the grave, and expressed her sadness, saying: “I want to give him a farewell worthy of him, I love him very much and I miss him badly.”

Jason’s struggles with excess weight began as a teenager, worsened after his father’s death, and in recent years, his condition required intensive care, including being transported by crane from his home for treatment.

In his later years, Jason was immobile, lying permanently on the bed, suffering from breathing difficulties, and doctors failed to prevent his organs from failing.

In 2022, there were more than 1 billion people in the world suffering from obesity, including 650 million adults, 340 million adolescents and 39 million children.

Adult obesity rates have more than doubled since 1990 and quadrupled among children and adolescents (aged 5-19).
