Every year, Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change supports Gastroparesis awareness by engaging in a themed campaign designed to highlight the issues, needs, and goals of our community. This year’s theme is #GPWontSilenceMe.
As part of this effort, I would like to collect photos, quotes, experiences, and/or stories demonstrating what you would like doctors, researchers, legislators, policymakers, the media, and family/friends to know about living with GP and/or discussing the changes we, as a community, need to see.
This is your chance to speak! The goal is to help the outside world understand that this is more than a tummy ache. They need to see the true effects of GP on your life — physical, mental, social, financial, and spiritual — and they need to know what measures and actions you believe would help.
To submit, please share your entries in the form below. Collection will be ongoing, so there is no set deadline… but the earlier, the better, as I will need to prepare graphics and other materials by August 1, 2022.
Thank you so much for your help!
