A personal appeal to the Camino 'community'

With a personal belief that there is power in collective thought and prayer, I reach out to each of you, fellow travellers along the journey of life where we have shared in the healing and gifts of the Camino, and to ask that you send positive energy and thoughts for Pia Isabella, the most amazing of people and an honour to know as a daughter.

The recent struggles of young Pia with anorexia have led her to be admitted today to the eating disorder clinic of a hospital, which has a very strong and positive reputation. While having tremendous confidence in the clinical team at the hospital, would also like to reach out and call on each of you to hold positive healing thoughts for Pia and her recovery.

The love for Santiago de Compestela for Pia began with her first visit there, where she celebrated her 4th birthday. That love led her to walking the Camino Ingles during her 8th year, and several further walks since, during which she has had multiple experiences of the wonderful 'magic' that the Camino and all associated with the Camino brings.

Anything in the way of healing energy and thoughts that you can give will be so welcome and so appreciated.

So many thanks.

I wish her a positive outcome from her treatment at the hospital and a successful recovery from her eating disorder. Please reassure her that people care about her and want her to get back to good health.

Will absolutely pray for her. Please update us when possible. 💕🙏

Your thoughts and prayers are really appreciated and very valued, and will post an update once she is 'released'. The recovery for Pia is probably going to be long with the real first steps being taken today with admission. The decline has been rapid, beginning with weight loss at the very end of January and needing to be admitted to hospital today.

Pia Isabella - You have a wonderful mother by the looks of it and dozens, if not hundreds of us, wishing you a speedy recovery in many different ways.

Just like the Camino, there will be some easy days ahead , and difficult days as well. The important thing at the end of every day, difficult or easy, is to find in yourself something that strengthens you for the days ahead.

There will be some ups and some downs, some setbacks and some surprises but by putting one foot in front of the other, over and over, and over some more, and then some more again, just like when walking a Camino, we know you are going to make your recovery and do your self proud.

You are surrounded by people who want to help, just like on a Camino and on this forum, know that you are surrounded by people who want you to know that you are firmly in their thoughts and prayers.

We know its a struggle Pia but we believe in you and we hope to meet you on a Camino some time in the future.

To echo VNwalking above - Heartfelt Buen Camino peregrina!

What a beautiful photo. Pia is not only a dual pilgrim, but at triple one - this inner journey she is on right now being the third.
She is on my list for prayers of well-wishing.
Heartfelt buen camino, peregrina!


Thank you and what an uplifting message about Pia on the third pilgrimage of the inner journey - with her own determination and the loving energy, thoughts and prayers of caring people such as yourself I am trusting that Pia will emerge and return to health

Wishing the best for Pia. There are many more Caminos for her to walk.

Many thanks David - and we are so hoping that following a return to health that the next Camino leading to Santiago will be the Portugues

Good morning Walton and feeling so moved by your message that I am personally totally choked-up as I write this. A heart-felt thanks to you and all in this community for the care and love that helps us feel so fortified at this time of facing such a challenging uphill stretch. Pia has confronted and surmounted tremendous Camino challenges, including deep snow on the Camino San Salvador that we walked in March 2016

My thoughts and prayers are with Pia Isabella and her family. Anorexia affects the whole family and I understand how wretched you all must be feeling.

You are so understanding in writing abut how Anorexia affects the whole family and how wretched we are all feeling. The messages being received, including your own, are a tremendous support, and when I yesterday read some of the messages, the tears flowed from her and myself at the kindness and shared closeness of the Camino community. The kindness and love is so felt and so important. Thank you for your post and yur understanding.

I hope Pia feels strengthened by the love and prayers flying her way from so many parts of the world. Mine come to you both from Nova Scotia, on Canada's Atlantic coast. So many Camino angels help support us on the hard parts of our the path.

Not that I ever doubted the tremendous power of prayer, but never in my life have I felt such an enormous and urgent need for the combined and caring support of a wider community, and the messages and sentiments from the worldwide Camino community on this forum and beyond, which includes yours from the east of Canada have a value that is so enormous it is impossible to put into words. Thanks so much Hobbyhorse, very appreciated.
