Review for Gastroparesis Patient Association for Cures and Treatments, Inc., Etters, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had Gastroparesis for the past 7 years and GPACT was very critical in the beginning helping me understand what I was facing and how to deal with it. To know that there were so many others who suffered the same thing that I did eased a little bit of my anxiety, but as I delved deeper and deeper into what Gastroparesis was and what I could be dealing with I was horrified. Members of the online group are some of the most uplifting, caring, compassionate people I have ever met. No matter what they are going through, they are ready to set that aside and lift you up and give you information that has helped them. It is never medical advice and if it is a medicine or something else that has helped them, everyone is encouraged to discuss it with their doctor. Almost 2 years ago I decided that I wanted to be a part of this amazing community being able to help others that are just starting to find out they have this, or maybe the ones that are far in it but have gone up against a setback. It is important to make sure we are always encouraging people. I am not someone who is right up front showing everyone what I am doing, I would rather be a "behind the scenes" type of person and the other volunteers were very patient trying to find the perfect fit for me. I am so glad that I have found such an amazing nonprofit that is just trying to help the patients and go to the many different companies and doctors to try and get some funding to get research and better treatment options and hopefully a CURE!!
