Trisha Bundy

Patient Leader

I am a loving mother trying to make the best of unexpected health challenges created by gastroparesis and other digestive motility disorders. I was living a "normal" life Feb 2013 as an active mother and elementary teacher but woke up the next morning unable to eat without severe pain, debilitating nausea, and vomiting/heaving. Due to my continued health problems and their impact on my daily life, I sadly had to resign from my career. I have been dependent on a feeding tube since 2013 for nutrition, IV home hydration since 2016, and have an ileostomy since 2016. Illness may have flipped my life inside out, but I believe that I can use my personal medical experiences to help others through their difficult and sometimes scary experiences, help others know they are not alone on this journey, and hopefully help express the need for increased research along the way as well. I also hope to remind others that they are here for a reason and can still find purpose in their life, even if it's not the purpose that they had first envisioned.
