At only eight years old, Dana may be the youngest anorexic ever. Her total consumption of calories in that past was only 175 and she performed exercise routines so rigorous, an average adult would want to quit. She skipped rope for an hour after each meal and then go on a run to lose even more weight.
“Dana, The 8 Year Old Anorexic” is a compelling documentary produced by Cutting Edge Productions. The film focused on the hopes of transitioning Dana from child suffering from a chronic disease to a happy and healthy child. Out of fear for her safety, Dana’s parents rushed her to the Rhodes Farm Clinic in the United Kingdom to undergo an intensive 12-week program that could save her from starving herself to death.
