The Quad Cities Eating Disorders Consortium has changed their name to Amy's Gift and relaunched a new website at www.amysgift.com to honor the Amy Helpenstell Foundation, who provides the grant which funds the organization, and Amy Helpenstell herself, the bright Quad Citian who created the foundation before her passing due to complications from anorexia. The mission of Amy's Gift is to be guided by the Amy Helpenstell Foundation’s message of help, hope and healing by promoting awareness, understanding, diagnosis and treatment for eating disorders so that those experiencing the disease in our community can receive the best treatment possible.  Amy's Gift provides resources, a local support group, and educational events for health care professionals, educators, and families alike on the subject of eating disorders.

To find these resources, information on upcoming events and more, visit the website at www.amysgift.com, call (309) 779-3077, or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
