Jaiden ForsytheAdvocate 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.
