Most of you may know me already...I feel so ashamed

By November 28, 2012 - 8:12am

Hello, my name is Amber Foster and I made headlines on CBC National News, chek News and others for trying to get help on my Anorexia that I have had for over 20yrs.. You can google my name. Anyways, I have relapsed because the Government only paid for half the program. I got to Edmonton From BC, to the U of A Hospital Program and got cut off when I was medically stable \, even though the entire reason for me going was the transitional compent built into the program. The governemnt told me me they would no longer fund me and sent me home with expereince eating wihtout supervision, etc.. Now, I am back at square one. Begging the Government to take me back and get the funding. GEESE!!

Hi Amber

I am so sorry you are not getting the help you need.

I am not familiar with the healthcare system of Canada, only that they have universal health care but with obvious faults in the system.

Can you give us an update on what's going on now? Can your GP do something to have to accepted into a program again?
