Where Are They Now? Project HEAL
We had the pleasure of getting to know Liana Rosenman and Kristina Saffran- founders of Project HEAL (original video below.) A few years ago the two met while in treatment for anorexia nervosa. In the Spring of 2008 they founded Project HEAL: Help to Eat, Accept and Live (www.theprojectheal.org), a not-for-profit organization that raises money for others with eating disorders who are not able to afford treatment, and tries to diminish the societal obsession with body image that helps contribute to eating disorders. When we first met the girls, Project HEAL had established 30 global chapters, raised over $300,000 and sent eight applicants to treatment.
We caught up with Project HEAL to find out they are growing and doing great things. They now have over 35 chapters in 3 countries! How awesome is that? They sent 6 more people to treatment (14 in total.) They have since help a national fundraiser acquiring over $75,000. They plan to hold another one in California in the near future.
As for the girls:
