Andrew Belliveau

Patient Leader

I started the Gastroparesis Pie Face Challenge in hopes of spreading awareness & finding a cure for Gastroparesis, from which I suffer. Gastroparesis is a condition that causes your stomach to become paralyzed meaning you cannot eat, digest or absorb any neutrients. I was inspired by the ALS Ice Bucket challenge and thought maybe I can do the same for Gastroparesis! There have been hundreds of participants in my challenge including several Major League Baseball players from the Boston Red Sox & Chicago Cubs. So far over $4,000 has been raised for G-PACT as a result of the challenge. For more information please visit Facebook.com/gastroparesispiefacechallenge
