Gastroparesis affects people of all races/age/gender/*********. It does not discriminate. Help Raven to bring national attention to this terrible illness that even most doctors do not think is an issue. Some people go from healthy to tube fed within weeks or months. Some people live with the uncomfortable effects for years. These people need to have a voice, please help us have that!

Many people submitted their pictures to Raven so she could put this video together. Actually, she had enough pictures for 3 videos, I believe. Raven is a 20-yr-old dance instructor who was diagnosed with Gastroparesis (gp) at the age of 14. She also competes in pageants, proudly showing off the scars on her abdomen from the many surgeries she has had, during the swim suit portion of the pageant. She expects to have to have a surgery every two years to replace the gastric pacemaker that helps push the food through her digestive tract. Her mother also suffers with gp, and recently her younger brother was also diagnosed. She says when she dances, she feels no pain. Please help get her on Ellen's show so she can bring national attention to gp in hopes of getting the medical community to fund more research and hopefully find a cure.

Gastroparesis is a debilitating disease causing organ failure through malnutrition and dehydration. It can cause issues normally seen in elderly people because of lack of cellular functioning! #curegp #gastroparesis #EllenDanceWithRaven
