URGENT for Endometriosis Awareness
Organized by: Amy Gautreaux
EVENT DATE Apr 09, 2015
Endometriosis can have a devastating effect on the quality of life due to its very painful symptoms; it is the biggest cause of infertility in women, and carries a huge personal and societal cost!
One of my dearest friends Jessica has been suffering for a great number of years and she can finally get the surgery she needs. She went to school and worked for several years to get a very good job, and she has medical insurance for the first time since being diagnosed. She has only had her job for a few months. She has already missed work due to complications from her condition, and has had other emergency surgeries prior to her insurance becoming available. As a result she hasn't been able to save very much, and I really want to help her meet her deductible so she can get the surgery that will end her suffering.
If we are lucky enough to raise more than she needs, we will donate the surplus for endometriosis awareness. Do not hesitate to let me know if you need more information.
