Jennifer Doucette, Prince George woman, crowdfunding for anorexia treatment (Dr. Julia Raudzus, St. Paul's Hospital)
Mother-of-two Jennifer Doucette of Prince George, B.C., is crowdfunding to get herself treated for anorexia at a private clinic in Manitoba.
The 21-year-old made an emotional plea on YouTube to draw attention to what she calls a lack of resources for people with eating disorders.
“This illness isn't treated in a matter of weeks, months or even years. It often requires years of treatment, years of levels of support,” said Dr. Julia Raudzus, who runs the adult eating disorder program at St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver.
