As I am sure many of you are aware as a undergraduate I suffered from severe anorexia that almost cost me my life.
I have now recovered from anorexia with the help of cotworld house a specialist eating disorders service in oxford.
Many people however are not as lucky as I was and anorexia is still the mental illness with the largest death rate.
Following on from mine and Fiona (my mums) success on the London to Brighton I am walking both the Chiltern challenge and the Peak District challenge for beat. The equivalent of almost 5 marathons to raise awareness for anorexia and money to help those suffering from this terrible illness.
My mum is also walking her first 100km after her success on the second half of the London to Brighton. She was in a far superior state to me when she finished.
Many of you I know donated money for my london to Brighton walk for mind with myself and my mum together raising well over a thousand pounds and we were extremely grateful for all the support we got.
I would however ask people to consider donating again. Anorexia care is a really poorly funded area of the NHS with many more patients then the service can provide care for. Beat offer support and advice for people with anorexia and their families and I love to raise as much money as possible for this amazing charity
Thanks in advance
