“Before Waterstone Foundation, I felt hopeless in overcoming my eating disorder. I am proud to say I am two years in remission and fully enjoying my life."

"Honestly, WaterStone was the place that kicked me into high gear to get well after six years of suffering in pain - mentally and physically."

We can’t stop now! Eating disorders are a leading cause of death and have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric illness.

Eating disorders affect over a million Canadians.

There is no known single cause of eating disorders.

Both females and males can develop eating disorders.

I am a passionate advocate for individuals with eating disorders, particularly men. When you talk openly about invisible disabilities and share they become visible. Doors open to support and networking.
