This is definitely a shi**y way to die…
Via NY DailyNews:
The death of a 26-year-old former ski champion brings to light a devastating addiction of the dangerously thin.
Georgia Willson-Pemberton had it all: beauty, a prestigious education and the best of everything. But she was also battling anorexia and a laxative addiction.
Willson-Pemberton, once a gold medal child skier, took more than 80 laxative pills in a week, causing serious stomach and bowel damage. Her death on December 7 was ruled a “multiple organ dysfunction caused by laxative abuse,” The Sun reports.
The 5’10″ woman had wasted away to 105 pounds at the time of her death.
Willson-Pemberton, who lived in West London, had been struggling with anorexia for four years. She received treatment for her eating disorder at some of the top clinics in Britain and the U.S., including The Priory, but to no avail.
She once hid up to 200 pills in padded bras, counfounding her doctors and specialists.
This is terrible. No one should have to lose their life because of their body image issues. We feel for her and her family. If you know someone dealing with similar issues, PLEASE make them get help!!!
