June Alexander, internationally-recognized author of “My Kid is Back, grandmother, and survivor of a 44-year battle with an eating disorder, presents a FREE eating disorders teleconference on “Why the Best Get-Well Tool of All is LOVE!” for MentorCONNECT [March 22, 2010] – June Alexander, author of “My Kid is Back”, will present a FREE teleconference on Wednesday, April 14, 2010, at 8pm central time. All are welcome to attend. RSVP’s are required. About this event: “It is NEVER too late to recover from your eating disorder!” This courageous statement comes from June Alexander, a grandmother who emerged triumphantly from a 44-year battle with anorexia and bulimia at age 55. Today, she is an author, speaker, mentor, and all-around advocate for recovery at any age. June knows from first-hand experience how important it is to have the support of family and friends during the recovery journey. In this teleconference, June will share how she separated herself from the voice of her disorder, what specifically helped her to achieve lasting recovery, how to identify others who are willing and able to support you, and why recovery is always WORTH all the hard work it takes. This event is sponsored by MentorCONNECT, the first global eating disorders mentoring organization. Based in Houston since its inception in September 2007, MentorCONNECT now has a presence in 32 USA states and 12 countries, and has sponsored free events featuring such notable authors and speakers as Jessica Setnick, Jenni Schaefer, Dr. Carolyn Becker, Doris Smeltzer, Thom Rutledge, Kirsten Haglund-Miss America 2008, Dr. Kenneth Weiner, and others.
