Family trying to raise money for 'bionic stomach'12th January 2012
The family of a teenager from Farnham in Surrey are trying to raise £22,000.
The money is for an operation to fit a gastric pacemaker which will stop her from vomiting up to 50 times a day by making the stomach contract when eating.
Dannie Goodridge, 15, has the rare condition gastroparesis – also known as stomach paralysis - which reduces the ability of the stomach to empty its contents. The family say it would take a minimum of six months for the NHS to decide whether it would fund all or part of it.
