Why men? And why eating disorders?

On the evening of Tuesday 29th September 2009, Laurence Francis Nugent, aged just 24 years old, went to bed complaining of chest pain. His family thought the pain was due to muscle strain sustained during his constant vomiting. However, unfortunately they were wrong; Laurence’s eating disorder caused a major heart attack and, sadly, he died in the early hours of the morning. In 2012, Pamela Nugent founded The Laurence Trust to provide a safe and compassionate space for men and their loved ones to find support, so that tragedies like this one can be avoided.
