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

Rating: 5 stars  

Awesome organization. This is an organization which is fully staffed by volunteers so every single penny goes directly back to patients in some way. They are leading the fight against Gastroparesis, chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and colonic inertia. They are doing the first and only international IRB approved research study into GP. The volunteers are available 7 days a week and genuinely care and understand my needs because they all have it themselves. They know exactly what patients need and work to gear all programs to meet those needs. The volunteers are very personable and take time with ME, even though they have their own serious health issues. They have so many totally free resources, provide a wealth of the latest info, founded DTP awareness month, and have a huge international presence. They just get me. They understand from a first-hand perspective, not just head knowledge and facts. They know with heart and they show it. They are very responsive to me and do as much as they can to ensure I get as much support and info as possible. Their integrity is so high and they are open and honest about everything. They work as hard, or harder, than people who get paid. It's a passion for them...not a job. I've been a fan since almost the beginning, and they have grown so much! I fully trust them with my privacy and their expertise in this area!
