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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed in March 2012 with Gastroparesis. This changed my life as well as my family's living/eating habits. I hit the computer to find help, as my GI Dr at that time (I now have a new one) did nothing for me, education/reassurance/nothing! In all of my on-line search for help to understand GP, I found G-PACT to be the most informative. I ordered a Restaurant Card from them so when I was out 'eating' with family, I could order a small portion or off the kid's menu without a problem. They have links for credible doctors and other helpful info. G-PACT has several campaigns going as well. Such as the one asking the Federal Government for funding for research. This doc is so close to being passed, I can almost taste it and it is much needed for all of us! Just picture having the flu 24-7 and you are only partially in our daily shoes! G-PACT is involved with so much and they provide up-to-date information (check Facebook too), that I asked what I could do for them in return. That is how I became a volunteer and have just now assisted with the launch of our “Please, Pass The Puree” on-line fundraiser. We wanted to honor all of us that are unable to eat a Thanksgiving Meal! This is currently going on, so check it out. I can't picture not being part of this great non-profit organization. It is my dream one day to be able to eat food again and enjoy life the way I did before GP hit me. It is my belief that with G-PACT we can make this happen!
