I'm a friend of Sarah's trying to unite with others to help her get treatment for her severe eating disorder and live a life in recovery!

This is a continuation of Sarah's treatment fund. She is currently in a hospital getting medically stabilized and needed to withdraw the funds that were raised on the original website to help with the costs for the hospital. Thanks to the kindness of many people, we were able to raise almost half of Sarah's goal. But we still have $3,600.00 more to go to fully cover the expenses for her hospitalization. Like all things in life, recovery from an eating disorder is long process. Upon discharge from the hospital treatment program, Sarah will move to a residential treatment program for several months, incurring even more medical costs. So any help you can give will be forever appreciated by Sarah and her loved ones!

Here is what Sarah wrote on her first fundraiser that I copied onto here:
Hello! My name is Sarah Davis and I am 22 years old. It is difficult for me to do this and reach out for help because I am usually not to open or talk about my eating disorder to many people. I have been struggling with a severe eating disorder for 8 years. Due to inadequate insurance, I have not been able to get sufficient treatment for the right amount of time. My insurance company continues to only pay for a couple weeks of treatment at a time, and then cuts off funding. My treatment team feels that I strongly need treatment to finally get myself in that place of full recovery once and for all. I have made alot of progess and need this last push to finally get better. My insurance company will not give the benefits I need, or consider it at all. My mom and I have been in touch with a treatment center that is willing to work with us at a reduced price if we can fund raise enough money. My eating disorder has taken so much from me: my health, my college education, all friends and relationships, money, happiness, hope, quality of my life, I have many many health issues, and feel so scared that this could be life forever. I want to live and I want to recover! I want to be able to help people who have gone through the struggles I have. Any contribution helps no matter how small! If you have any questions feel free to email me at sld5201@psu.edu
