1000 Lb. Sisters Tammy Slaton and Amy Slaton often talk about being from Dixon Kentucky. Both grew up there even though Tammy says she was born elsewhere. Tammy says she was born in Illinois and Amy in Indiana. However, the girls grew up in Dixon with their brother Chris Combs. Dixon is a small town of 1.26 square miles.
The girls attended Union High School where their mother says Tammy Slaton graduated with honors. Tammy wanted to be a nurse but couldn’t make it happen. But where is Dixon, Kentucky located? Dixon is located in Webster County. Dixon began as a Stagecoach Inn in 1794 about five miles from Dixon.
Dixon was incorporated into Webster County in 1861 and became the county seat. Dixon is approximately three and a half hours from Tammy Slaton’s bariatric physician in Georgetown. Dixon is eight hours from Ohio Specialized Rehab where Tammy resides for her weight loss help.
On the season finale of 1000 Lb. Sisters, fans were informed that after a huge health scare, Tammy lost 115 lbs. Tammy continues to update fans on social media and seems to be doing much better. Tammy agreed to return to rehab after Dr. Smith gave her a home visit last fall.
Unfortunately, Tammy waited so long that she stopped breathing and ended up in the hospital on life support. Tammy still has a trachea today to keep her airway open. Tammy says her biggest inspiration for losing weight is her grandson Gage Halterman. Now Tammy has two reasons to get healthy since she has a new grandson on the way.
Tammy has mixed messages from fans because they don’t believe she always tries her hardest. However, now that Tammy is doing better, fans are rallying behind her with support. Hopefully Tammy will be back home soon.
