We will fundraise, raise awareness, and do everything in our power for this cause.
|Mission||Eating Disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illnesses. Our mission is to prevent and heal eating disorders through education, change in public policy and support of those impacted. Through our events, generous efforts aided by fundraising, and in partnership with other organizations we will educate our community and the public about eating disorders and their destructive consequences on the families affected by them, affect change through public policy and provide resources to those suffering. Families who face the crisis of a child or loved one suffering through an eating disorder need to support each other. We feel that it is important to create a network of parents and/or family members to support each other through the most difficult times. Our objective is to enlist multiple highly skilled professionals to work closely with families and provide the necessary intervention.|
Ilona Melyokhin was an incredible person who lost her life too soon. She was, first and foremost, a loving daughter, a caring friend, and an amazing overall person. She provided so much kindness and care to the people around her within her short life, and in her memory, we want to continue doing the same for others.
Eating Disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illnesses. Through our events and generous efforts, we plan to fundraise, along with outreach and education our community and the public about eating disorders and their destructive consequences on the families affected by them.
With your helping hand, we believe that we can truly make a difference for families that really need all the help they can get. Remember, you don't have to give money for kindness. Get involved with us and lend a helping hand, and we promise you will have the grand reward of saving a young life.
