Eating disorders are extremely prominent in today’s society. With the unrealistic expectations of the world, the altered and sculpted photos printed all over magazines, people are resorting to the extremes. At the young age of 14, Gemma Walker was diagnosed with both anorexia nervosa and bulimia. These two severe eating disorders are not to be taken lightly, and in Gemma’s case, were life threatening. Weighing in at a mere 63lbs at the age of 14, Gemma’s parents were told by doctors that she would have only 48 hours to live if she didn’t receive immediate medical intervention. Her father had the dreaded task of checking up on her every morning to see if she was still breathing, something I’m sure no parent would ever want to do. 7 years later, Gemma has made an extraordinary recovery and has shared her photos in hopes of helping others with their journey to recovery.
