March is Endometriosis Awareness Month and we need more research and tools to fight it! I’m screaming my rage on the page by doodling my experience with endometriosis to raise awareness.
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. 1 in 10 people assigned female at birth suffer from this disease and recent stats say that 50% of them have likely experienced thoughts of suicide.
That’s A LOT.
I’ve been fighting endometriosis since I was 14, and have had 4 surgeries to manage it including a recent hysterectomy where I learned I likely would never have naturally conceived children. It’s a real shit sandwich. This month I’m screaming my rage on the page and doodling my experience with endometriosis to raise awareness. You can read more about my journey here.
The Pelvic Pain Clinic and Centre for Endometriosis is one of the leading treatment centres in Canada for women like me, but their waitlists are long (12 months with a referral!!) and they need more funding for research to help kick this disease in the junk!! If you or someone you know is one of the 1 in 10 and you have the resources, your donation makes a huge difference. If you don’t have the cash — no problem, just share the campaign and help us raise awareness!
Thanks so much for your support!!
