Hi, I'm Krystal! Endometriosis affects millions of women, and I'm one of them.
I am really excited about the Million Woman March for Endometriosis (MWMFE) and will be sharing information regarding this wonderful upcoming event and information about endometriosis. It's time to Empower, Educate, and Effect!
What: Million Woman March for Endometriosis is an event that is scheduled to occur in dozens of capitals around the world to help raise awareness about endometriosis.
When: Thursday, March 13, 2014
Who: Dr. Camran Nezhat, and his team have coordinated this event. They have recruited volunteers from all over the world to work together to make this event a success. Some of our other co-sponsers that we are excited to have on board are:
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM)
The American College of OBGYN (ACOG)
The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons (SLS)
The World Endometriosis Society (WES)
American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL)
American Medical Association (AMA)
World Symposium on Endometriosis (WSE)
Where: Demonstrations will take place at the same time throughout the world in different locations. I will be attending the event in the United States, which will take place in Washington, DC.
Other international demonstrations will occur worldwide in dozens of capitals, including Amsterdam, Belfast, Berlin, Brasilia, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Dublin, Helsinki, Kingston, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Oslo, Reykjavik, Rome, Stockholm, and Valleta. Visit the website http://www.millionwomenmarch2014.org for more location information.
Why: Endometriosis is a disease that effects 1 in 10 women and girls. Most receive inadequate care and misdiagnosis's for many years due to a lack of education and awareness throughout the medical community, as well as in society. Endometriosis effects and in many cases destroys women's reproductive organs, but it can also effect many other organs causing irreversible damage to the lungs, liver, heart, eyes, kidneys, brain, bladder, bowel, diaphragm, nerves, and muscles. We must create awareness so those who suffer from this disease no longer have to suffer in silence. We also need to educate our health professionals so that women who suffer can find adequate health care. I am in hopes this will lead to more research and spark the finding of a cure!
