McMillian appeared earlier this year on season 8 of the hit TLC weight-loss transformation series. She weighed 643 lbs. when she first appeared on the show back in March.

The mother-of-four wanted to regain control of her life and end a cycle of overeating to deal with the trauma of her past.

Shortly before McMillian appeared on the series, she suffered a heart attack and lost her fiancé in a car accident.

After receiving weight-loss surgery, she suffered complications and ended up on life support. It was reported that McMillian started hemorrhaging when a row of stitches from the procedure had broken open.

The reality star is survived by her four daughters. Funeral services will be held on September 24 and September 25 in Plaquemine, LA.
