Through DHA, members of the digestive health community are coming together and stepping up to fundraise for research and donating proceeds to the IFFGD. Here are a few fundraising highlights from 2013, some of which directly funded our 2013 Gastroparesis Research Grants and made these special gifts possible.


Cheryl Aaron Foundation


Lonnie and his team of volunteers has an ambitious goal of raising $20,000 for gastroparesis research and they're more than half way there! Throughout the year, the CAF hosted events in the community - golf outings, bowl-a-thons, restaurant events, you name it - all in order to raise awareness for gastroparesis and bring money in for research for increased and improved treatments for the condition. Lonnie's wife Cheryl passed away in 2012 as a result of gastroparesis and he started the CHeryl Aaron Foundation in her honor. Lonnie and his team are dedicated to making a difference for this community. He joined us for Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill and works tirelessly hosting fundraising events and serving as an awareness ambassador all year long. You can support the Cheryl Aaron Foundation in reaching their goal by visiting:
