She Died

A mother on the Around The Dinner Table gave us this news this evening:

As a mother, as an advocate, as a member of the Around the Dinner Table community, I honor this this mom for coming back to tell us. I honor this family's attempt to help their dear daughter and sister.
I hate eating disorders.


  1. tragic.

    my thoughts and prayers are with this family.

    i hope that, especially this week, it will serve as a reminder of the deadly reality of ed's.

  2. Laura, I just read the posts on FEAST...I am saddened with all my heart another life is taken by this horrendous disease. My thoughts and prayers are also with this family, especially her mother who seemed to be doing everything she could. I am not a memeber of Feast as I am one with an eating disorder myself, but I am in my early 30's and I read when you post links because I find them very helpful. For every parent out there, for Laura and all your work I send so much gratitude. Though I work with an OP team, this site serves as a helpful, realistic reminder of what this disease really is. Laura, thank you for all of your work. And to this girls family, my heart just breaks for you today-and for you Laura. Keep spreading the message. With much gratitude.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know something of your heartbreak, having also lost our bright, clever, vivacious and caring daughter to this awful illness! We followed part of the Mawdsley approach and she did get better. Anorexia though had other ideas, and returned with a vengence! By then, though, she was on the other side of the world, and died while travelling in South America.

  4. Anonymous,

    My deepest condolences on your loss. I would very much like to hear your story. Perhaps I could share it on the blog, or the F.E.A.S.T. site if you were willing. Please feel free to write me at

    Share stories of your daughter - and let us celebrate her.
