Morgan & Morgan Hunger Relief Center Dedication

Morgan & Morgan Hunger Relief Center Dedication

On March 6, 2013, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida’s fight to end hunger took a major step forward with the dedication of the Morgan & Morgan, P.A. Hunger Relief Center. The new, 100,000-square foot facility—more than double the size of its predecessor—is equipped to handle millions of pounds of food the organization had to previously turn away due to a lack of adequate coolers, freezers, and general infrastructure space.

“This is one of the best things we’ve ever done,” Mr. Morgan said of he and his wife Ultima’s generous $2 million donation to the cause. “Other than the four children, this is one of the best things we’ve ever done.”

By the organization’s estimates, the value of the food stored in the Morgan & Morgan, P.A. Hunger Relief Center over the next 20 years will exceed $1.4 billion.

The Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization spearheading the fight to end hunger by collecting and distributing food to more than 500 nonprofit partner agencies throughout Brevard, Orange, Lake, Seminole, Osceola, and Volusia counties in Central Florida. In addition to gathering and distributing food to those in need, Second Harvest Food Bank strives to raise public awareness on the “invisible problem” of hunger and poverty, as well as develop county-specific solutions to hunger in Central Florida.

Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana

In 2013, John Morgan partnered with United for Care in campaigning to legalize medical marijuana on behalf of sick and suffering Floridians. It took nearly four years, two elections, and cost John millions of dollars, but medical marijuana was finally legalized in 2016.

John’s support for medical marijuana is personal; it helped relieve the pain of his father, who had emphysema and esophageal cancer, and his brother, who is paraplegic. Another reason he supports medical marijuana is because of the damage he’s seen caused by the powerful prescription pain medications his clients are often given by a doctor following an injury.

The initial campaign began by writing an initiative and hiring an “army of angels” to collect the nearly 700,000 signatures required to get it on the 2014 ballot. While collecting signatures proved challenging, the initiative eventually qualified for the ballot but faced a consistent and well funded opposition throughout the campaign. In the end, 58 percent of voters were in favor of the initiative, but it required at least 60 percent to pass.

Undeterred, and further inspired by Floridians who urged him to try again, John launched another campaign to legalize medical marijuana. The second time around Florida had no doubts about medical marijuana and the initiative passed with a resounding 71 percent of the vote.

It has come to our attention that some users of Mounjaro, a popular self-injected drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes, have reported serious side effects. One of the most concerning Mounjaro side effects is gastroparesis, which is essentially a "paralyzed stomach." The major issue here is that Eli Lilly, the manufacturer of Mounjaro, did not disclose these potential side effects to consumers.

As a result, many people continued using the injection without fully understanding the risks involved. CNN reported that one victim "suffered from severe vomiting, gastrointestinal burning, stomach pain, and was hospitalized several times." If you or a loved one has experienced any of these side effects or similar symptoms after using Mounjaro, tell us about your case; you may be eligible for compensation.

 

What Is Gastroparesis?

Gastroparesis is a medical condition that affects the normal movement of the stomach muscles. This disruption causes delayed emptying of the stomach contents into the small intestine. The term "gastroparesis" combines "gastro" (relating to the stomach) and "paresis" (meaning weakness or paralysis).

 

What Are Some Common Symptoms of Gastroparesis?

Individuals suffering from gastroparesis experience a variety of symptoms. Some of the most common include:

  • Nausea and vomiting, especially after eating
  • Early satiety, feeling full after consuming only a small amount of food
  • Bloating and constipation due to delayed stomach emptying
  • Heartburn and GERD symptoms caused by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus
  • Mild to severe abdominal pain, which can be intermittent or chronic
  • Disruption of blood sugar control, making food absorption timing unpredictable
  • Inadequate nutrient absorption leading to malnutrition and unintended weight loss
  • Reduced appetite due to the discomfort and symptoms associated with gastroparesis

 

I Have Been Using Mounjaro for a While. Do I Have a Case Against Eli Lilly?

When you buy a drug, you expect it to serve its purpose, which in this case is managing Type 2 diabetes. Like any medication, some side effects are normal. What's abnormal is the manufacturer's failure to disclose these side effects.

Eli Lilly knew that using key ingredients like semaglutide and tirzepatide in Mounjaro could increase the risk of stomach paralysis. However, they didn't share this information with consumers. This lack of transparency prioritizes profits over human lives.

Think about it: would you purchase a product if you knew it would cause you more harm than good? Probably not.

Saxenda has been a popular choice for people looking to treat Type 2 diabetes and lose weight. For years, millions have trusted this drug to help manage their health issues. However, recent reports indicate that some Saxenda side effects are more serious than many people realize. What's even more concerning is that some of these side effects are not listed on the product's packaging.

This is a troubling example of large companies making profits at the expense of consumer safety. If you or a loved one has experienced harmful side effects from using Saxenda, contact us right away. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages.

 

What Is the Saxenda Lawsuit About?

Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer of Saxenda, has been accused of failing to disclose all potential side effects of the drug. Recent reports have shown that some patients developed "stomach paralysis," or gastroparesis, after using Saxenda. Other medications in the same class, like Ozempic, Mounjaro, and Rybelsus, have also been implicated.

 

What Is Stomach Paralysis?

Stomach paralysis, or gastroparesis, occurs when the stomach muscles don't work properly, causing food to move slowly or unpredictably from the stomach to the small intestine. This can lead to symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and stomach discomfort.

 

How Do I Know if I Have Stomach Paralysis?

Symptoms of gastroparesis have been highlighted in recent lawsuits. These include:

  • Nausea and vomiting, especially after eating
  • Feeling full quickly, even with small meals
  • Bloating and stomach discomfort
  • Heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Unpredictable blood sugar levels, especially problematic for diabetics
  • Unintended weight loss and poor nutrient absorption
  • Bacterial overgrowth and the formation of solid masses (bezoars) in the stomach

If you or a loved one has experienced these symptoms, contact us. We can review your case for free to see if you might be eligible for compensation.

 

How Is Gastroparesis Treated?

Treatment for gastroparesis may include dietary changes (like eating smaller, more frequent meals), medications to stimulate stomach muscles, and managing any underlying conditions. Severe cases might require more intensive medical interventions.

 

List of Weight Loss Medications Involved in the Lawsuit

The following weight loss medications are currently part of the ongoing lawsuit:
