The friends of Jami Papakalodoukas are uniting to raise money to help her pay for necessary medical procedures . Please show your support!

Jami has been diagnosed with gastroparesis. This is a disorder in which the stomach takes too long to empty due to damage of the vagus nerve. Gastroparesis causes the patient to be unable to eat any solid foods and therefore receive no nutrition.
Since Jami was diagnosed with gastroparesis she has lost over 197 lbs in one year. She has not been able to eat any solid foods for over a year. Her body is not allowing her to keep down any fluids anymore. Jami has been traveling back and forth from Montana to Mississippi to be under the care of a specialist. He suggested that her gastroparesis is so severe that she needs to have surgery to implant a gastric neurostimulator. This is a battery-operated device that releases mild electrical pulses to help control gastroparesis symptoms.

Once she found what seemed to be hope in this situation, she was struck with the cold facts that her health care coverage was being terminated.
While enduring all of her medical problems, Jami's tattoo studio lost their full time artist and her studio was broken into and robbed.

Jami is very sick and in desperate need of this life-saving operation. All donations are greatly appreciated and will be used towards Jami's medical expenses. Please keep Jami in your prayers at this time!
Thank You So Much!
Henri and Kayce Montegut
