I am raising money for Endometriosis South Coast. Anything you can contribute towards helping me achieve my target will be massively appreciated.
I have suffered with the symptoms of this disease since I was 11 years of age, but didn’t get a diagnosis until I was 29 years old, I ended up with a hysterectomy at 32 years old to help deal with my symptoms. This did not work as well as I had hoped. Stories like mine are far too common in women with Endometriosis.
The current situation with COVID-19 is really affecting a lot of women with endometriosis and if I can raise money to help those women out by putting on more support groups then this is what I will do.
Many women with endometriosis live their lives in silent agony. It's time to change that. Endometriosis South Coast helps these women with monthly support groups and holding awareness events.
"The charity for me has been absolutely amazing, it has helped in so many ways, but the most important thing for me has been that there is always support available, which not only helps with the process of dealing with Endometriosis, it also helps with keeping a positive outlook, knowing that im not alone and others understand."
