I am tackling the mudd for to raise money to support a cure for Endometriosis, by registering for tough mudder (www.2017 in Chicago...https://toughmudder.com/events/2017-chicago). Someone very close and dear to me [I'll let her decide if she wants her name out there] has Endometriosis. While she handles it like a champ, it has effected her life in ways I could never imagine nor conceive. During our frequent conversations about it I have learned there are a countless amount of other women who have this dieases. As a father of a daughter, son of a mother, and friend to one of the most awesome-est woman I know and love I am putting my effort forward towards funding a cure and treatment
Studies show this disease affects approximately 10% of women worldwide and, from my understanding early symptoms are easliy, and are often over looked by medical professionals. This has resulted in too many occastions of where being miss diagnosed occurs. Many women are not diagnosed correctly till 10 years after the first signs of symptoms, that may have been originally over looked.
While there are many causes out there that directly affect me (Youth violence, Education, Black on Black crime, dementia, this list can seriously go on) I choose to tackle the mudd, this time around for Endometriosis (I will be back for to raise money for other causes ;-)). While this is for that young lady who reluctantly skipped the "No", tempted by the "maybe", and circled the "yes" box (I am so glad she did); this is also for my daughter, mother, the many women friends I have, and friends with young daughters, I feel someone needs to make a stand!!
Plus I like to run and jump ;-)....Help me fight!!!!
