In an effort to raise awareness about the dangers and prevalence of eating disorders, the Gardner-Webb counseling services department is screening the documentary “Someday Melissa” on Monday, April 2 at 7 p.m. in Blanton Auditorium, located inside Hamrick Hall. “Someday Melissa” is the story of Melissa Rose Avrin, the 19-year-old who died of a heart attack in 2009 after a five-year battle with bulimia. Melissa is remembered as extremely bright and creative, and her poem “Someday…” became the inspiration for this documentary, which her mother Judy Avrin created.
