Theresa (aka T.Co) is the marketing coordinator for RARE. Her journey in the RARE. world began in 2017 after an unfortunate accident with a camping chair. She developed a rare condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) where her brain misfires pain signals.
After extensive physical rehab and finding the right medication, Theresa went into remission. But at the same time, she had developed another rare condition called Gastroparesis. This means she has a partially paralyzed stomach and cannot digest food properly.
After two years of numerous hospital admissions and many tests, Theresa’s care team decided the best option was to place a surgical G/J feeding tube so she could alleviate nausea while also getting proper nutrition. Theresa has a very complicated relationship with her tube, but she is grateful for what it does for her body.
