Not all scars show. Not all wounds heal. Sometimes you can't see the pain someone feels. Gastroparesis is invisible! Please join the fight to bring awareness to this horrible illness. This is not a 'one size fits all' illness. It is different for different people. Please watch the video to learn more, and see a few of the many people who suffer from this horrible illness. #ellendancewithraven #curegp #gpawareness

We are trying to get Raven Walton on The Ellen DeGeneres Show so she can bring awareness at a national level to the need for more research and hopefully a cure for gastroparesis (gp). Raven is a gp patient, she teaches children to dance, she says that when she dances she feels no pain. She also competes in pageants where she proudly shows her scars from her many surgeries that she has had because of having gp. She can expect to have a surgery every two years to replace her gastric pacemaker until a cure for is found. The pacemaker helps push the food through her digestive tracts. Some people do not have that luxury, others live with gp for years without having surgery because of it. There is no natural progression to this monster of a disease, some patients have to have tubes for feeds within weeks of diagnosis. We need help bringing this to national attention. We can get that if we can help get Raven on Ellen's show.
