In Memory of Christine Hartline- Founder of

Christine Hartline, the founder of EDReferral passed away in late March from a long battle with breast cancer. In honor of Christine who gave so much to so many, particularly in the field of eating disorders, through her commitment of time, energy, knowledge and passion, the Christine Hartline FUND FOR ED Treatment had been created. The fund was the idea of many of Christine's colleagues including Carolyn Costin, Sharon Peterson, Johanna Kandel, Gail Schoenbach, Lisa Kantor, and Kathleen MacDonald. We are thankful to Kevin, Christine's husband, for allowing us to offer this opportunity for people to remember Christine. The fund is set up thru the F.R.E.E.D. Foundation (For Recovery & Elimination of Eating Disorders), a 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to raising funding for people to receive treatment. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of monies go directly to an individual's treatment.  The foundation  will let Christine's husband Kevin know how the money raised was used, as well as send you a receipt and acknowledgement for your donation. If you have any questions about donating, please contact Kathleen by Email:
