Ellen Bennett lost her daughter, Katie, in 2013, to anorexia.

Anorexia is an insidious, brain based disease, with life threatening consequences and a 20% mortality rate, the highest of all mental illnesses. A doctor who consulted on Katie’s case in Denver told me later her brain was “hijacked” by the disease; this term helped me begin to understand why this disease is so devastating. He also used the phrase, “it was like dealing with a terrorist, extreme, irrational and so incomprehensible”. Eating disorders are not a choice, they are life threatening diseases.
