Bloggers Unite for EndoMarch: Week 1- Basic Info: EndoMarch 2014

January 16, 2014

Bloggers unite!! Form of…Advocacy!

What? This is not the Wonder Twins?

Damn. I really wanted special powers.

Well, it ought to be. Because we’ve got to send a message and that’s what the EndoMarch is all about. I personally will not be attending but I support the cause and will be participating in this Blogging Challenge for two reasons:

  1. I support the cause (duh, I just said that) because this disease has certainly impacted my life
  2. The lovely Casey over at ChancesOur might go Yonkers on me if I don’t. 😉 And hopefully she will forgive me for plagiarizing her post (pretty puhleez?)

So…what is EndoMarch and why should you care?

EndoMarch 2014 is an endometriosis awareness event that is happening in cities WORLDWIDE on March 13th, 2014. Yes, I wrote WORLDWIDE folks – that’s how important this issue is. In the U.S. it will be in Washington, DC. But this is a worldwide event because endometriosis is a disease that effects at least 1 in every 10 women, yet it takes on average TEN YEARS for women to get diagnosed due to the lack of education and awareness in the medical field and the general population. There is very little in the way of public awareness for the disease. Women with endometriosis often suffer in silence. Women often are left misunderstood and lose their jobs, friends and the support of their family while left in chronic, debilitating pain. Women lose their organs, their pregnancies, and their fertility as well. Endometriosis has a profound impact on the lives of its patients and those near to the patient. The only way we will see improvement in awareness of the disease, money raised to find better diagnostics and treatments for endometriosis is to come together as a community and make some noise. We need to be heard.

You can register here to attend the march today. Contact a march precinct manager to see what is happening near you. Join Casey and Melanie in Washington D.C. Casey is promising hugs to all the ladies she connects with online. That alone is worth the trip!
