Sofia Benbahmed is engaged in two battles: 1 with an eating disorder, 1 with an insurance company. You have the power to help her win both.

Sofia Benbahmed is a fiercely brave 21-year-old who self-advocated to raise the necessary funds to enter residential eating disorder treatment, despite the ongoing negligence of her insurance company. (You can read her original appeal here: http://www.giveforward.com/sofias-eating-disorder-treatment-fund) The previous fund closed 3 days after Sofia entered treatment, her health having deteriorated past the point where she could risk waiting. At this point, Sofia remains in Monte Nido, committed to the fight for her life. Our goal is to step in where her insurance company failed, so that she can stay in treatment for the necessary 2-4 months,while fighting her insurance company and her disease.

The BENEFICIARY of this cause (Salim Benbahmed) is Sofia's father, who is handling as much of the finacial aspect of this as possible. The END DATE is based on the GF policy of turning over collected funds only when a fundraiser is completed. If you would prefer to make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation, you can do so through the F.R.E.E.D. Foundation, by sending a check (with "for Sofia Benbahmed's treatment" as the memo) to the following address:

PO Box 4113
Warren, NJ 07059
