H.R. 2239: Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act of 2011
This illness, Gastroparesis, is a life threatening digestive illness well over 5 million people are surviving with every day. I have lost my colon, gall bladder, survived septicemia and multiple other life threatening blood infections, survived a terrible flu I had problems fighting, as well as many others fighting so many similar battles. Organ transplants due to this illness have occurred. Babies are living on iv nutrition or small intestine feeding as well. This has no age, no rhyme or reason. Help me, and others, bring a voice to DC and pass this Bill!! We want to live too!!!
http://www.GastroparesisAndMe.com for info on this illness. This site was started approx April of this year, 2012. We are building a strong support system through collaborations with others who are inflicted with GP, as well as businesses and organizations instrumental in supporting these efforts. The "Me" in "Gastroparesis and Me" means Everyone with GP. Until a person is finally diagnosed, "Is this just ME?" is what so many feel like.
