My name is julie Velasquez and I was diagnosed with severe trauma induced gastroparesis 3 years ago. This awful condition which translates to "paralyzed stomach" has greatly affected my life and the lives of those around me. I am on a strict liquid diet consisting of mostly feeding tube formula (which I have to drink because my insurance won't pay for a feeding tube, water, Gatorade, pedialite, and the occasional small amount of ice cream or milk. I am limited to small amounts of physical activity due to severe pain and exhaustion due to lack of nutrients. I have been to several specialists and have tried many treatments to no avail. Elle, please dance with Raven Walton to help raise awareness and find a cure for this awful medical condition that is taking so many lives!
