My name is Lisa. I’m a 40-something-year-old typical happy-go-lucky, crazy, young woman. On June 30, 2014, I had a routine surgery, which ended up with a “Surprise! You have Endometriosis” diagnosis. Since my diagnosis, I’ve been doing everything I can to not only learn about my disease, but also help raise awareness. During these efforts, I’m also helping any way possible to raise funds for various foundations and charities to aid in the research and development of treatments and, hopefully, one day a cure. I’ve now had a total of six excision surgeries (including two bowel resections) since 2014.
I pledge to my readers, fellow EndoSisters, and anyone else: I will never seek to profit from this. I will freely share anything I’ve learned with you. The money raised in a Bloomin’ Uterus fundraiser will never enter my personal pocket: I will donate it to a charity of my choosing whom I have fully researched and trust to do the most with our money. Any support groups, meet-ups, or walks I organize will never charge admission or registration. Nor will they be a platform for those who seek to self promote their interests and products for profit, popularity, political or personal gain. You are not a consumer to me. You are a fellow Warrior.
