As 23-year-old dance teacher Raven Walton competes on CBS’ “Big Brother” this summer, she’ll be fighting for more than the $500,000 prize. She’s also raising awareness of her chronic illness, gastroparesis, and the gastric pacemaker she uses to treat her condition.

The Arkansas native was diagnosed with gastroparesis at 16. In a pre-show interview for CBS, Walton said it’s possible to actually see her pacemaker in her stomach. She’s asking “Big Brother” viewers to use the hashtag #PacerPower when discussing her on the show on social media.

“Pacer power, ya’ll!” Walton said. “It gave me a second chance at life. And it’s my second heart.”

Raven has stated her medical debt is $200,000 so far, so let's band together the Big Brother community and help her and her family as they fight this terrible disease.

We turned the GoFundMe off because of lies and bullying. Then we got bullied for that with trolls taking credit for having it removed. So we have it back in again. Ravens friends and family are tired of the lies, bullying, and hate being spewed . We the family and close friends know she is telling the truth. if you want to donate to help Raven ...we thank you. If you don't. Then don't. We didn't start this account a fan did after Christmas asked for it to be made for our daughter. It's public knowledge but yet the trolls sho don't know us or her spin it. Raven has many ailments all verified with medical records and doctors. It's sad that we live in a world of hate and bullies. It's easier to believe hate than the truth. So please spread love not hate. Research Dr. Thomas Abel and severe gastroparesis. Because Knowledge is power.

To Amanda, Sally or any other naysayers.
Raven nor anyone else in her family has asked for a dime this year. A fan created this account and gave it to Raven after Christmas asked for one on BBAD. If you think this is a fraud here is the story that went to CNN years ago when we WERE asking for help to SAVE Raven's life. The Hospital asked for $40k up front to implant her pacemaker that insurance would not cover. Thank you again to those people, you saved her life.

My wife Stacy was diagnosed with Severe Gastroparesis when she was 23 and received her first gastric pacemaker in 1998 from a study program under Dr. Thomas Abell. She is fully disabled. So we know a thing or three about this illness.

Raven is not lying about her illnesses or the fact that they can be fatal. Many patients die from Severe Gastroparesis or complications from it. Raven is doing much better these days and everyday I get to spend with her or my wife is a blessing.

Raven owns her dance studio as in she RENTS a building where she can teach children her love of dance. So you either believe her or don't. if not, don't donate. Its that simple, and if you know one person with a severe illness then you already know how medical bills pile up.

So please don't troll us, or threaten us. I will continue to delete comments which have no place here.

Thank you so much to those who have given. God bless you.
