Faces of Recovery

A number of years ago, someone who recovered from an eating disorder visited Eating Disorders of York Region. She said something remarkable.

When this visitor was struggling with an eating disorder, she said she didn’t know recovery was possible as she had never met anyone who had recovered.

EDOYR thought to change that. Thus, we present to you, “Faces of Recovery.”

Our first “Faces of Recovery” story was posted on our website. Ola Mazzuca, a Journalism student at Ryerson University in Toronto, talks about her recovery.

As we meet more “Faces of Recovery,” we will continue to present stories of those willing to share.
