Kelly Chartier

Hi. My name is Kelly and I have been battling idiopathic GP for 8 years. I was diagnosed after I had a surgery , which may or may not have been the cause. I have 4 wonderful children and they, along with my husband, family and friends have made this journey a bit more bearable. I have had 9 surgeries to keep things at bay including the gastric pacemaker which became infected, along with every other option for GP. I am on TPN for the rest of my life and can take small sips of liquids, which help with caloric intake. The challenges of GP will be something I will always have to live with but along with my amazing team of doctors and support from my family, I wake up each day ready to take on new challenges and cherish the days where I have strength and the fight to never give up.
