Remembering Lives Lost to Eating Disorders

As hard as patients and their families work to overcome an eating disorder there are times when treatment fails. Some patients die as a result of the medical effects of eating disorder behaviors or from suicide as a result of the psychological symptoms.  F.E.A.S.T. joins the families who have lost their loved ones in mourning and in celebration of the lives cut short by these disorders.

There is no greater loss than that of a son or daughter. Eating disorders are very dangerous conditions and do, in numbers far higher than the public seems to understand, cause death. As a parent community we stand together with bereaved families in their grief. We feel this type of loss with great empathy and special understanding. Although this is never the outcome we expect, we do not run from the reality that not all lives will be saved. When eating disorders take a life it is time to put aside all else and focus on supporting the family and friends.

If you know of a family that has lost a loved one to anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, or other eating disorder please let us know if we can be of support. Let the family know that we will remember the life of their loved one on our website if and when they wish to share. We welcome families to share their experiences and seek support on our online forum. Our local Task Forces and small support networks and allied organizations may be able to identify local resources for families facing this terrible loss.
