The road to recovery: Hope’s story

Season 5 Episode 3

Hope is one of 5 children. It was a big, busy family and not without its fair share of conflict and discord. By the age of 17 Hope had been suffering from anorexia for 4 years, a condition she’d done her best to hide from friends and family. But when her heart nearly stopped things had to change. In this week’s Backstory we hear about life as an in-patient and how relapse and recovery are a long journey.

Hope’s fundraising page can be found here.

Her book ‘Stand Tall Little Girl’ is available here.
