G-PACT, Gastroparesis Patient Association for Cures and Treatments, Inc. was established on August 23, 2001 by a handful of patients in an online support group.
G-PACT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides services to patients who suffer from digestive tract paralysis including gastroparesis, chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and colonic inertia. We reach out to over 60 countries and all 50 states. We focus on a variety of options and provide services and information completely free of charge. We are staffed completely by volunteers, so 100% of donations go to support our activities. This includes multiple support programs, awareness activities, advocacy work, education, and conducting and funding research.
