BENEFITING: The Eating Disorders Information Network, Inc.
EVENT: Merrick's Walk for EDIN 2015
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
My name is Sara Aston. I'm 14 years old and was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa in July 2014. The past year has resulted in a number of hospital stays, including residential eating disorder treatment, which ultimately saved my life. It has been the most difficult year of my life, but with the support from my treatment team, family and friends; along with the continuum of care today, I am recovering my life back one day at a time. As I continue to move forward with my recovery, I hope God will use me to help someone else one day. Team Recovery will be walking in honor of Sara's journey and many others who have battled with this life-threatening illness. Team Recovery will be walking to honor a community of eating disorder professionals, of mothers and fathers; siblings and significant others who have in one way or another been impacted by an eating disorder. We believe that through increased awareness and education, eating disorders can be prevented and lives can be saved. Help EDIN raise awareness and promote positive self-esteem by supporting Team Recovery at Merrick's Walk Sunday, October 25th.
