About The Elisa Project:
In 1997, Rick and Leslie McCall established the Elisa Ruth McCall Memorial Endowment at Southern Methodist University in Dallas in memory of their daughter Elisa. She was a vibrant 20-year-old college student who, like many her age, suffered the pain of an eating disorder and recorded her struggle in her personal journal. She had hoped to reach out to others, but found her own struggle too great and ultimately took her own life. The publication of her journal has inspired many in her community to rally around the cause of combating eating disorders. ESTEEM is about friendship, fellowship, mentoring and uplifting one another. It builds confidence through support while raising critically needed funds for the agency to continue to provide much needed services.
