On May 6, 2009, 19-year-old Melissa Avrin lost her life to an eating disorder. It was a five-year battle that wreaked havoc on Melissa’s self-esteem, her academic success, her friendships, and her family. Someday Melissa is a documentary that her mother, Judy, made after her passing. It is inspired by Melissa’s journal writings and designed to raise awareness of this insidious disease.
