My platform is eating disorder awareness in honor of my brother, Joey. He was diagnosed with anorexia and bulimia at a very young age. I have seen at first hand what this horrible disorder can do to a person and their family. Did you know that eating disorders are the number one mortality rate in any mental illness? We need to break the myths and stereo types and bring awareness to everyone to help save lives. I want to be there for people struggling, & encourage them to never lose faith & hope, and to always know that not matter what, they are beautiful . We can confront this serious illness with increased awareness, early intervention & improved access to treatment. Everyone should get screened for an eating disorder, it is often hidden in plain sight. Recovery is absolutely possible, the sooner one seeks treatment the better the chance of a good recovery. Eating disorders do not discrimate, they affect all ages, genders, ethnicities, etc. however we all need to know know matter what we are all beautiful because God created us all unique and special.
