Trisha Bundy

Patient Leader

In 2013, I became chronically ill, losing the ability to eat without severe pain, nausea, and vomiting. As a mother of 3, wife, and teacher, my life was severely altered. I've been diagnosed with Functional GI Disorders (Gastroparesis, Colonic Inertia, & Pelvic Floor Dysfunction). As a result of debilitating symptoms, I depend on my GJ feeding tube for nutrition, PICC line for home IV hydration, and an ileostomy. I share my personal health experiences via social media and blogging, as I want others to know they're not alone. I advocate online with fellow GPers & Ostomates to raise awareness of the grueling impact FGIMDs have on lives & the need for new effective treatment options.

Ms. Trisha works tirelessly to educate others regarding the effects of gastrointestinal motility disorders & never fails to offer help & support to those in need. She is active on social media, maintains her own blog, & advocates for others who often feel lost. She does all this not for praise or accolades - but she deserves them, nonetheless.  — Melissa
