Before treatment, it felt like Sunnie and her family were fighting their daughter. With collaboration from the treatment team and education around eating disorders, the fight had now changed. The battle was now against the eating disorder and not their daughter.

Sunnie Gruwell resides in Houston, Texas, with her husband and six children. She currently serves on Eating Recovery Center’s Recovery Ambassador Council and feels grateful for the opportunities this has provided to share her story with others. She admires the strength, resilience, and growth her daughter has shown as she battles her eating disorder, and greatly appreciates the ERC for equipping her family with the tools needed to feel empowered in their fight.
