Imagine a deadly illness that will kill 1.65 million Americans.
Find that it is treatable and up to 70% of people who receive treatment will recover with effective treatment.
Consider that current treatment methods are inadequate and millions of people will die preventable deaths.
The treatable killer? Eating disorders.
For an eating disorder, food is medicine. Food-tracking is a vital part of treatment, yet current methods for doing so are hugely inadequate. Current fitness apps are counterproductive to treatment due to the focus on calories and weight loss. Even the few apps specifically for eating disorder treatment are not able to capture all of the data needed for optimal care.
We have a powerful solution.
An anonymous donor provided the initial seed money to begin development of an application designed to facilitate efficient, effective treatment. The framework is in place to provide the functionality, information and usability that patients and providers have requested. Our recovery-friendly system is free of the diet and calorie focus of other systems and features food logs with richly detailed nutritional information that will dramatically improve treatment worldwide.
We can't do it alone. Will you help us finish this vital app?
The basic structure and core mechanics are completed. Your donation will fund the final stage of development that integrates the pieces into one robust tool and gets it into the hands of providers worldwide.
Will you help us save over 1.6 million lives in the US, and millions more worldwide?
