After a long battle with anorexia, model Karin Bauman, daughter of Judith Bauman, passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 35.
Yehudit Bauman and Shimi Tavori were by her side during the night, where she was pronounced tragically dead. Bauman was hospitalized at Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital after her condition deteriorated. For the past decade, Karin has been battling anorexia, and after suffering from pneumonia and breathing difficulties this week, it was decided to admit her to the intensive care unit, anesthetized and on a ventilator. At night, her condition deteriorated and before dawn she was pronounced dead.

Following the unfortunate announcement, the sports world and footballers' wives did not remain indifferent to the important issue - the fight against anorexia.
Itai Shechter, who finished last season at Hapoel B'Sheva, told Israel Hayom this morning: "It's just incomprehensible. I feel the pain of the Bowman family. Judith did holy work with Karin. As a father of a daughter, this is an issue that needs to raise his awareness. Very sad."

Assi Buzaglo also did not remain indifferent, saying: "The heart aches. To see someone whose condition has deteriorated to death is so sad. And maybe this is the wake-up call for the current generation to understand that it is possible to make changes in life and I am even in favor, but always keep a finger on the pulse and preferably with close accompaniment. You certainly can't go to a place of self-starvation, nothing is worth it."
Mirren Buzaglo added: "There are no words. So sad."
