Another person wants Ellen to invite Raven Walton to dance on her show. Raven Walton wants to help bring national awareness to gastroparesis (gp), an awful disease that literally means 'paralyzed stomach'. While not every gp patient's stomach is totally paralyzed, the motility of the stomach as well as portions of the upper or lower colon is slowed way down, taking much, much longer for the food to travel through their system. Some patients actually have food rot in their stomach before they get ill enough that it purges out of the patient's body. We need to give gp patients a voice. Getting Raven Walton to dance with Ellen will give us that voice as well as hopefully stimulating the medical community to put more funding into trying to find a cure.

Why Raven? Because she is no stranger to the limelight. Raven , a fellow gp patient, teaches dance to young children, but she also competes in beauty pageants, where she proudly displays the scars she has from the many surgeries in the past... 7 since diagnosis, she expects to have one every 2 years until there is a cure for gp. She is a 20-yr-old dynamo who says she feels no pain when she is dancing. Please help bring this young, courageous woman to Ellen's show, where she hopes to bring national attention to gp as well as the hope of urging the medical community to increase funding for gp research, and hopefully find a cure.
