Meet Lisa

Meet Lisa

It was amazing the difference I felt in such a short period of time once I started on Peptamen--I had my life back!!!!

Lisa was diagnosed in 2003 with severe idiopathic gastroparesis. Life was difficult for her and her family with endless doctor’s appointments and complications of the illness, however after she was placed on a feeding tube with Peptamen, her weight started to improve, and energy level began to accelerate. She saw an amazing difference felt in such a short period of time once I started on Peptamen®—she had her life back!!!! Lisa is now a busy and proud mom, grandmother, business owner and traveler who was only able to ‘find her sunshine’ and now lives a normal life because of Peptamen.

Meet James

Meet James

It was almost like a no-brainer to get a feeding tube. It was the best thing to ever happen to us. We are very pleased with it. We are very happy. It is his lifeline, and that’s what it always has been.

James spent two months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) after a worrisome birth. James had a stroke during the first trimester of gestation and never learned to suck or swallow. When he was a few months old, he had a feeding tube placed. After his first birthday, James was diagnosed with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, a condition that impairs movement of all four of his limbs. After a long journey of trying different formulas and diets, in 2016 James was introduced to Peptamen® Junior 1.5. This formula remains his sole source of nutrition today. James’ parents are compelled to share his story, and in so doing, raise awareness for those with physical and cognitive disabilities.

She plans to pursue a nursing degree once and wants to work on the IBD floor; through her experience she can relate to those patients and can talk to them about her experiences in the hospital and at outpatient care.
