The Cheryl Aaron Memorial Fund
Fundraising for :Gastroparesis
||December 31st 2013
Welcome to the Cheryl Aaron Memorial Fund (CAMF). The CAMF was founded on the idea of funding research to ultimately find a cure for Gastroparesis. For more information about the CAMF visit: www.cherylsfund.com
My name is Lonnie Aaron. My wife Cheryl passed away in March 2012 as a result of the disease Gastroparesis which has no cure. We created The Cheryl Aaron Memorial Fund in her memory to assist in finding a cure for this deadly but relatively unknown disease. We will be hosting a variety of fundraising events in 2013 and would greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide to make these events successful and help raise funds which will go towards Gastroparesis Research through the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders. In 2009 Cheryl began to experience digestive problems. In 2010 she was diagnosed with severe Gastroparesis. This disease causes the stomach to be in a paralyzed state. Cheryl was unable to eat any solid food or anything having a heavy consistency. She was basically on a liquid diet for three years! She also endured several surgeries and procedures, numerous tests, and tried many different prescriptions. Nothing seemed to help her. She lost 40 pounds between 2009 and 2012. Close your eyes and imagine your favorite food, a piece of pizza, a piece of chocolate cake, a piece of candy, whatever your favorite food may be. Now imagine for 3 years you couldn’t eat it or anything else without getting nauseas and immediately running to the bathroom to vomit! That’s what Cheryl went through because of Gastroparesis! It’s our goal to help find a cure. Our hope is after hearing Cheryl’s story you’ll want to help as well!
