Join the Project HEAL family by sending more treatment grant applicants to the care they need through the Revlon Love is On challenge! All donations will go directly to our treatment grant fund.
The founders of Project HEAL, Liana Rosenman and Kristina Saffran, met while undergoing treatment for anorexia nervosa at just 15-years-old. The two girls helped each other to reach full recovery, and decided to help others achieve it as well.
In the spring of 2008, they founded Project HEAL to raise money for others suffering with eating disorders who want to recover but are unable to afford treatment.Treatment for eating disorders in the United States can cost upwards of $30,000 per month, and is often not covered by insurance companies. Because of this prohibitive cost, 90% of eating disorder sufferers do not receive treatment. The goal of Project HEAL is not only to be able to support those who cannot financially obtain treatment, but also to have treatment recipients achieve full recovery from their ailment.
Project HEAL has forty chapters in the US and two internationally that work with us to promote healthy body image and self esteem, and serve as a testament that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible.
