Thank you to everyone who attended Melissa's service and to those who sent messages of condolence and support. We are humbled and awed by your love of the fabulous Miss Melissa.
We are continuing to raise funds in Melissa’s name to assist in the inpatient treatment of eating disorders. Any and all contributions received will be donated to people fighting these deadly diseases. We feel this would be Melissa’s wish, and we want her legacy to live on.
We encourage you to send your personal stories about your fight against
eating disorders to firstname.lastname@example.org. Battles don’t have to be
fought alone. Melissa taught us that.
As Melissa wrote on her Facebook page:
“The best day of your life is the one on which you decided your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours. It is an amazing journey and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins, so get over the bullshit, get on with the real. Smile at yourself in the mirror, buy a pair of jeans in your size, eat that cupcake, hug your kids, run a mile, kiss your boyfriend, make a difference, change the world.”
