Daniel Aston’s ashes are surrounded by flowers during a memorial service held at Shove Memorial Chapel on the Colorado College’s campus on Dec. 7, 2022, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Aston, a 28-year-old trans man, was one of five people killed in the Club Q mass shooting on Nov. 19, 2022.

Daniel Aston and Derrick Rump, killed in the shooting in Colorado Springs, were considered the heart of Club Q. They were recently lauded by friends, family and coworkers. Then, it's well-known that the pandemic added new mental health challenges for people. That includes eating disorders like anorexia, where the number of cases is increasing.
