As part of our work with CME Medical, Trinity PR has helped to raise awareness of Daniel Isaiew’s fundraising initiative for PINNT – Patients on Intravenous and Naso-Gastric Nutrition Therapy Information.
Daniel took part in the Bupa Westminster Mile on Saturday 24th May to highlight the plight of his sister Kim, who relies on the CME Medical BodyGuard 323TM Ambulatory Infusion Pump to deliver her daily nutrient intake (Total Parenteral Nutrition or TPN) as a result of a chronic stomach condition, gastroparesis. This condition occurs when the stomach is unable to empty in its usual way, known as delayed emptying or paralysis of the stomach. Whilst Kim still suffers with chronic nausea, vomiting, pain and fatigue, Kim describes TPN as “a lifeline that has given me back some quality of life”.
Daniel completed the run wearing a duplicate version of Kim’s TPN rucksack which houses the CME Medical BodyGuard 323TM pump to raise awareness of conditions which require this treatment and underline the impact that it has on patient’s daily lives. He completed the run in an admirable 6 minutes and 2 seconds.
