Her Story

Jaiden Forsythe

Advocate for Eating Disorders

“You have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others” - Audrey Hepburn

My name is Jaiden Forsythe.

I am 16 years old and in grade 11 at St. Peter’s Catholic Secondary School.

I love to act and sing and have taken part in many musical productions.  I am a Shawn Mendes super fan and I enjoy listening to his music 24/7.

I seem to have a normal life but every day I have to battle against an eating disorder.

I have been a victim of anorexia nervosa for almost 5 years and have endured 2 painful hospitalizations at CHEO (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario).

Every day I fight for my life.

I’ve recently shared my story publicly to help others fighting the fight of their lives just like me.
