After many years of severe depression, my brilliant and creative 20-year-old daughter finally admitted she had an eating disorder. Soon afterward, her father died, his health insurance lapsed and my insurance wouldn't cover the costs. Since then, she has been on a path to lose as much weight as she could. She was admitted to hospital numerous times, as her body faltered. We waited in vain for over 3 years to get help from the government. I am hard working, but since I am self employed, I have an unstable income. My only other child is on disability. We finally went to a private hospital for my daughter's treatment. For the 3 month program, we were able to come up with 2/3 of the cost. She has gone through 2 months of treatment. To keep her in the hospital, and give her the best chance of survival, we need the final month's payment. Can you see yourself saving the life of this incredible woman? She was an honour student in high school, with many awards including the Lieutenant Governor's Award for volunteer service. She now dreams of returning to university in the fall, and eventually helping struggling women around the world.
