"Another thing that many people don’t realize is that F.E.A.S.T. is funded solely by donations. We rely on the generosity of our parent community to remain financially sustainable. We are in a position now where we need to ask for donations in order to continue helping the families who need us the most. We are asking people to give what they can, when they can. Whether it’s a one time donation or a monthly commitment, a small sum or a larger sum, please consider donating to F.E.A.S.T. today so that we can carry on throwing life preservers to the many parents who are trying to keep their heads above the water while leading their children toward eating disorder recovery."

Just sent a few bob. The help and support we have received are priceless. I would hate for that support and the work you do to be restricted due to money. 
2015 12yo son restricting but no body image issues, no fat phobia; lost weight IP! Oct 2015 home, no progress. Medical hosp to kick start recovery Feb 2016. Slowly gaining at home, seeing signs of our real kid.

May 2017 Hovering around WR. Mood great, mostly. Summer 2017 Happy, first trip away in years, food variety, begin socialising. Sept 2017, back to school FT first time in 2 years. 2018 growing so fast hard to keep pace with weight. 2020 Off to university, healthy and happy.

  • If the plan doesn't work, change the plan but never the goal.
  • We cannot control the wind but we can direct the sail.

Thank you!! 😍
Your journey is wonderful and it is thrilling to hear "2018 growing so fast, hard to keep pace with weight." Wonderful!
I will be using those quotes, each one of them.
Thank you again,
