For years, people have associated Anne Murray with her satin voice and hit songs. But last week in People magazine, Anne revealed a surprising side of herself — one that eight million families can identify with. Anne’s daughter is recovering from anorexia nervosa.
Though Anne had noticed some eating problems while Dawn was growing up, she attributed them to typical teenage behavior. Even when Dawn’s eating habits became more unusual, it was difficult to pin down their source. “I didn’t know what to do,” Anne confessed. “She would say, ‘I’m fine.’ She would eat while I was at home. She always put on a good face, but inside she was dying. She’s a great actress.” — Oprah interview
