Carers come in all shapes and sizes, my youngest being four-year-old grand-daughter Amelia. Amelia provides light relief and perfect balance to my writing passion for raising awareness of eating disorders.
This week on a grandma visit, Amelia got busy looking through my kitchen drawers to find a plastic shopping bag.
She then asked for a pair of scissors and within seconds created Version 2 of her baby sling for Cindy Doll (she points out that this version includes slots for Cindy’s arms, as well as legs, to be free). So thoughtful, I’m sure you agree.
I want her generation to grow up in a world that understands the seriousness of eating disorders, a caring world that provides swift, evidence-based, early intervention. This is why I am proud to be serving on the steering committee for our first-ever World Eating Disorders Action Day, June 2, 2016.
Right now I am excited to be connecting with people around our world, in gathering stories for #WeDoAct http://www.worldeatingdisordersday.org/#!blog/xcj8j. Check out this site. Get involved!
