Many of you know my story and I am committed to helping others as well.  I fought for 6 months before getting into Chapel Hill Eating Disorder Unit, but after 57 days was released because of insurance limits.  My goal is to raise money to help organizations such as NEDA set money aside for scholarships to Hospitals and other Eating Disorder Facilities that have insurance limitations.  

Many other who have no insurance and have to somehow come up with the money to pay out of pocket.  Costs for many Centers can range from 1000-2000 dollars a day, thus not allowing many to recieve the necassary long term help.  ED's affect kids, teens, adults and even the elderly and both males and females. Getting the help early enough for many will have a huge impact on there health and well being later in life.

There is approximately 10 million people who suffer with ED's in the U.S. and about 1 million are males.  It also has the highest mortality rate of any MENTAL DISORDER.

Years ago Breast Cancer awareness and its fund raising was finally getting the recognition by Americans now it is one of the largest Awareness campaigns around.  Martin Luther King Jr. was not celebrated until 1970 and today it is Nationally recognized by everyone.  I hope that one day the awareness and recognition of Eating Disorders in America will be as large as these others what I would call now Celebrations of recovery.  This wil only be accomplished by friends, family members and others willing to help out and give.

Please give any amount to my new CAUSE, also my word for the year through GOD.
