Growing up in Reno, Chantal’s friends from Mt. Rose elementary school and the Coral Academy of Science remember her as an energetic, full-of-fun friend. Her life was full of joy, family, and fulfilling activities. She loved her high spirited Thoroughbred horse, named Cash. Together they competed in and won many hunter-jumper competitions.
Chantal Hager was a young woman with a lovely spirit who was afflicted with a deadly eating disorder. Despite her best efforts and the support of professionals and family Chantal was unable to overcome her illness.
The Chantal Hager Foundation has created a video to help you learn about the devastating impact of anorexia and bulimia on families.
