Today is the official kickoff of #NEDAWeek2020! NEDA’s theme this year is “Come As You Are: Hindsight is 20/20,” and Eating Recovery Center is participating by sharing stories of hope from those in our community.

Shannon Kopp, an Eating Disorder Recovery Center National Recovery Advocate, shares her story that includes challenges, hope and how she’s looking ahead in 2020. Shannon is the best-selling author of “Pound for Pound: A Story of One Woman’s Recovery and the Shelter Dogs Who Loved Her Back to Life” (HarperCollins).

After battling depression and a debilitating eating disorder for many years, Shannon found hope in the unlikeliest of places: at her local animal shelter. Shannon’s poignant memoir is a story of hope, resilience and the spiritual healing animals bring to our lives. She vividly reminds us that animals are more than just friends and companions—they can teach us how to savor the present moment and reclaim our joy.

Hear from Shannon as she inspires those struggling with eating disorders and mental wellness.
