On Saturday, April 21st, I am participating in the Road to Hope Virtual 5K Walk/Run in Dallas, Texas with my family and friends. Funds raised directly benefit people who cannot afford treatment for an eating disorder and addiction. Since being in treatment, I have lost a lot of weight, but most importantly, I have learned how to control my impulses and regulate my emotions so that I canalize a healthier lifestyle and have more fulfilling relationships. I have also learned how to get the support I need through OA and other organizations. I would like to provide the gift of treatment and recovery for others because it has changed my life. Please help me reach my goal to send one individual to primary treatment. I have been blessed with so much support and I want to offer that to someone else. Thank you so much.
