Adelyn Lyon

I have been suffering from Gastroparesis for the last 7 months and in that time have lost 45 pounds and the ability to lead a normal life. Millions suffer from this disease, which causes debilitating nausea and pain, keeping us from being able to eat or having enough energy to work and raise our children. I am an elementary school teacher, and I love my job, but I currently can only work 4 days a week and, on days I work, I have to lay down any time I’m not with students to conserve my energy. I’m terrified that one day I won’t even be able to work at all. I also feel guilty using up my energy working and not being able to play with my own children. Please consider sponsoring HR 3396, a bipartisan bill that will raise awareness and increase funding and research. We deserve the hope of a cure.
