Raven teaches children to dance and competes in pageants while proudly displaying the scars from the gastric pacemaker she has in her abdomen that helps the small amounts of food she eats to travel through her digestive system. Her hope is to get on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to bring national attention to this disease that affects so many, yet is virtually unknown to most. Check out those dance moves! (Baby's got back) :-) #ellendancewithraven #curegp #gpawareness #dancecare

Look at this wonderful dancer. You would never know, but she suffers from an 'invisible illness', in particular, gastroparesis (gp). She says when she dances she feels no pain. She wants to help bring awareness to gp at a national level, hoping for more research and possibly a cure. Not even (most) doctors know the extent of symptoms that come with gp. Patients are often treated badly, with doctors denying that the patient has the symptoms they say they suffer with. If you go to the support group, you can see that most patients suffer with at least some pain, not so bad on some days, worse on other days. Some live with constant pain. This is our reality and it is not fun. Please help us bring awareness to this sometimes debilitating disease.
