Eating disorders are terrible, terrible diseases where you feel so alone, you are showing people that they are not alone and you are a walking example of how much better life is without the eating disorder. Thanks again for everything you do!"
|"I want you to know how much you inspired me while you were here in Detroit. Since your visit, I have my own website, I am signed with all of the talent agencies, I have a new headshot, and I am in the process of recording my voice over demo. All this because of your talk. I needed that kick in the butt. Thank you!" - Nicole Yohn, Actress, Detroit|
