Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page! Eating disorder awareness is very personal for me because I know the stigma of anorexia and bulimia. I have spent more than half of my life living through the hell of an eating disorder. You do not recover from an eating disorder simply by eating. Treatment is intensive, long term, and incredibly expensive in part because many insurance companies refuse to cover the long term care needed to recover. Recovery is not perfect, eating disorders can be a lifelong battle. Despite everything my eating disorder tells me, I fight every day to believe in my worth and ability to recover. As my friend Lexi says we are warriors!
Eating disorders are controlling, secretive and deadly.
I am walking because I hate everything about this disease. I am walking in memory of the friends I have lost to this disease. I am walking for my own recovery. I am walking because I have to believe there is hope!
Did you know that 30 million men and women will suffer from an eating disorder in their lifetimes?
