Thanks to a young woman named Hitomi Nakashima, her family & friends CVSA has received just over $200 in donations. As a young girl (age 12-18) she suffered from CVS. As she states "Never will I forget the pain I endured for six years." However, after leaving for college my symptoms slowly faded away and they have not reappeared since. I was able to lead a happy, fulfilling college life. Although my CVS disappeared from my life, I understand this is not the case for many other patients. So this Holiday Season I created a GoFundme page titled 'Help Me Fight CVS' to help further research of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.
