A 20-year-old boy with a paralyzed stomach has persuaded top baseball stars to throw pies in their faces to raise awareness for his rare disease.

Andrew Belliveau was inspired to create the Pie Face Challenge after the success of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that raised $115million for research and was also created in his home state of Massachusetts.

He suffers from gastroparesis, a rare condition where his stomach cannot digest or absorb nutrients causing him to vomit 15 to 20 times a day and lose 35 pounds within the first two years of having the condition. 

Now Andrew’s goal of raising awareness and money for a cure is being fulfilled with Boston Red Sox and Yankees players, and hundreds of others across the US rising to the challenge.
