You may say, “I don’t know anybody that has Endometriosis.”
One in ten people born with a uterus suffer from Endometriosis. Many suffer in silence because it can be an embarrassing disease, laden thick with affiliations toward periods, menstrual flow, sexuality, and stereotypes. Chances are that you know someone who has Endometriosis, or know someone who knows someone that has it. And you know what else? Famous people have Endo : Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Sarandon, Cyndi Lauper, Dolly Parton, Pamela Anderson, and Hillary Clinton are just a few. There are so many. And it is suspected that Marilyn Monroe also had Endo. See? You know someone who has it. Might as well learn the signs and symptoms…
Susan Sarandon speaks out about Endometriosis at the Endometriosis Foundation of America’s Blossom Ball, an annual fundraiser
And Whoopi spoke at another EFA Blossom Ball event
I appreciate these women so very much for taking the time out of their busy schedules and speaking out about this disease.
