As the New Year approaches, we find ourselves thinking about auld lang syne and times gone by. And as we close the book on 2013 and get ready to begin a new chapter, we remember something that we need to tell you. It can't be said enough how much we appreciate each of you. For your support of digestive health, your efforts to inspire change for this growing community, and your dedication to finding answers to better understand chronic digestive disorders. It's because you that we have reason to believe that next year will be even better. Thank you all so very much. 
Happy New Year and Seasons Greetings,
Your friends at IFFGD 
Members of the Community Making a Difference: Geri 

Geri was diagnosed with gastroparesis two years ago, but she won't let the diagnosis stop her from living a full life. Learn more about this amazing member of the DHA community who earlier this year ran a half marathon and raised nearly $1,500 for gastroparesis research!


What is Gastroparesis? 

More and more we are hearing from people with questions about gastroparesis. Many of the advocates who joined us on Advocacy Day shared personal stories of the effects of the disorder and several DHA fundraisers, like Geri, are focused on raising money to support research of the poorly understood condition. But what is it?  Here are a few commonly asked questions about gastroparesis, a disorder where symptoms occur and the stomach empties too slowly.
Join the Fight for Increased Research & Awareness

Together we are working to find better treatments for those affected by functional GI and motility disorders. And with your help, that important work can continue. There is still time to make a year-end gift to IFFGD and DHA to fund life changing research and stand up for those living with these chronic digestive conditions.

Pediatric Research Bill Becomes Law

We are thrilled to let you know that the National Pediatric Research Network Act has become law! DHA has been supporting this legislation for years and we are pleased to share this example of how the work we do in Washington is paying off. Read on to learn more about what this means and why this new law is important. 

IFFGD, a nonprofit organization, and its grassroots arm, the Digestive Health Alliance (DHA), rely on donor support to fund research and to provide reliable information and support to those affected by functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders.
