Kandel founded the Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness in 2000. This non-profit organization is dedicated to eating-disorder prevention and provides resources for those struggling. She speaks openly and honestly on life after eating disorders and how to cope with a new lifestyle. The positive speak, clear use of words and the ideas of reclaiming yourself, regaining your health and recovering for good will speak to all that read it.
