Review for Gastroparesis Patient Association for Cures and Treatments, Inc., Etters, PA, USA
It wasn't until I dug below the surface that I learned what G-PACT really does. They are not only a thousands-strong patient support community. They are more than helpers who print cards for patients. They are also investigators who find the people in media and government who are fighting the same fight, and they collaborate with them.
Maintaining a social media presence is one thing, but having physical meetings with legislators to make the needs of the digestive tract paralysis community known, that is something rare and potentially game-changing.
Staffed by volunteers, almost all of whom suffer from the diseases the Org supports, there is copious compassion, empowerment, and educational opportunities.
G-PACT is pushing a very big boulder up a very big hill tirelessly. Help them however you can. I chose to dedicate my time and experience to the volunteer board of directors. There is room to help, and a strong sense of what that help actualizes into.
