Welcome to My Personal Page
After four months of some of the hardest, most heart-wrenching, agonizing work that the brave gal featured in this photo and our family has ever done, I can share today with overwhelming pride and gratitude this photo of Ella. We almost lost her to a severe eating disorder (ED), but thanks to her bravery, an amazing support team at the Eating Disorder Treatment Center (EDTC), and so much hard work done by Team Ella (Stephen, Bryan, my mom, and me), we have Ella back. Her wit, playfulness, critical thinking skills, love of reading and singing, compassion, and wisdom are returning. ED is still there, but every day this voice grows quieter and becomes less powerful. Ariella Sophia--our wise lioness of God--has earned her name. She truly is one of my heroes and sources of inspiration.
For Ella and the millions of others who suffer from this awful and even sometimes fatal illness, I will walk on November 12 to help raise money for the National Eating Disorders Association.
My goal is to raise $1500. Will you please help support my efforts?
Did you know that 30 million men and women will suffer from an eating disorder in their lifetimes? This is one of the many reasons that I am participating in a NEDA Walk to benefit the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA)!
NEDA is a nonprofit organization that provides lifesaving programs and services to individuals and families affected by eating disorders. NEDA is dedicated to erasing the stigma surrounding eating disorders, promoting positive body image and discouraging dangerous diet behaviors.
I am asking for your support to help me reach my fundraising goal of $1500. Donating to my fundraising page is a way for you to not only show your support for Ariella, our family, and me, but also to show your support for the millions of individuals and families affected by eating disorders.
Since 2009, NEDA Walks have been bringing communities together nationwide in the fight against eating disorders. NEDA Walks raise funds for NEDA’s lifesaving programs that help thousands of people every day!
Your contribution will help fund NEDA’s national Helpline, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, NEDA Navigators and countless other lifesaving programs.
Any amount you can contribute will make a difference in the fight against eating disorders. With your help, I am one step closer to my fundraising goal.
Thank you so much for your support! You can also help by forwarding my page to anyone you think might want to support the cause with us!
