The funding needs for inpatient treatment for Eating Disorder (ED) patients is not diminishing. Recent statistics show that 26 Million women and men suffer from eating disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder), and that some 500,000 teenagers (age 13-18) have some form of an eating disorder, and do not receive any form of treatment. Because many hospitals charge $1,000-$2000 per day, not including physician’s fees, we decided to be pro-active and raise money for direct payment to such hospitals, on behalf of these individuals. In our clinical practice, we know of individuals who have up to $500,000+ in medical bills, and have taken 2nd and 3rd mortgages on their homes to fund their daughter’s treatment.
Currently, Manna Fund is being bombarded with inquiries about scholarships from individuals in need of funding. Manna Fund has placed 14 individuals within the past 4 years, and are currently working towards raising funding for four scholarships this year. It is crucial that we receive more funding this year to help as many individuals as is possible.
