“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your unselfish efforts in fundraising to support women with eating disorders. My 22 year old daughter has been selected by Val and Teresa to receive support through your generous donations to their facility.
It is so very difficult to put into words exactly how wonderful Westwind counselling and Recovery center is. It was so scary dropping her off there, to experience on her own her fears and struggles she must face over the next few months, only to see her in tears on Friday when I picked her up to come home as she leaves an environment of safety, friendships, wellbeing and happiness. She has made lifetime connections to women who can support her because they truly understand that fight against ED.
My daughter is back in charge of her life again. We as a family knew that Westswind was her only option and the cost kept holding us back. We have taken on that cost realizing it was our babies greatest need. When Val informed us yesterday that your donations have assisted us it was overwhelming and we cannot thank you enough.
I will be sharing your website information in regard to your fundraising efforts with family and friends and within our community in the hopes that more people donate to your foundation.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you"
