In addition to EDReferral.com, Christine helped open Monte Nido and she also ran a program that housed animals so that abused women could go into a shelter, knowing that their animals would be safe and cared for. We thank you Christine for your contributions, and spirit and passion for helping others, not only in the eating disorder recovery community, but also for your passionate advocacy for animals and battered women.
Christine, your life was a blessing to us all. We appreciate all the work that you did to make the world a better place and for being a shining example of hope and recovery. Let us remember your passion and conviction to help others and let that remind us why we are all in this field: to be of service to others, to help others heal, and to bring more light into this world – just as you did.
In lieu of flowers, it was Christine's wishes that people will consider making a donation to the Animal Safehouse Program after her passing, or the support group, Young Cancer Survivor's Network. Additionally, IAEDP has made Christine an honorary fellow and is establishing an annual Christine Hartline Conference Scholarship, in which someone will be selected to attend the conference in her name. Furthermore, a Fund for ED Treatment has been established through the F.R.E.E.D. Foundation by her colleagues (Sharon Peterson, Johanna Kandel, Gail Schoenbach, Lisa Kantor and Kathleem MacDonald). Donations can be made via www.freedfoundation.org -- or by mail: P.O. Box 4113, Warren, NJ 07059 --please indicate in the memo section of your check that your donation is for Christine's fund. If you have any questions about donating, please contact Kathleen at email@example.com.
Thank you again Christine – you will be greatly missed,
- The EDRS Board
