Help Me Raise $3K For Endometriosis Foundation—Every Dollar Goes To Support Our Fight to #EndEndo

Deadline: December 7, 2019
(1 year anniversary of my diagnosis)

I am 1 in 10 women who have endometriosis. I joined TeamEndo and was planning to run the NYC Marathon on November 3. I’m a seasoned runner, having run many half marathons, a marathon, trail races including a 25K. I love to run and can be found hitting the roads and trails in all four of Maine’s seasons.

Unfortunately, my endometriosis has taken a turn for the worse and provided a new round of challenging symptoms that are invisible, yet so pervasive. In my case wreaking havoc on my quality of life and holding me back from fully engaging with the world and participating in activities I love most.

Ultimately, my goal is still possible! I want to share my story and raise money for Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound)— an organization striving to increase disease recognition, provide advocacy, and fund landmark endometriosis research.

My Diagnosis:

On December 7, 2018, I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and PCOS after undergoing laparoscopic surgery. I was 35, on the cusp of my 36th birthday. I had finally found a doctor to pay attention to me and honor my pain. The year leading up to my diagnosis was one of the toughest of my life. I was sick, in physical and emotional pain, and fighting every day just to get up and go to work. I stopped being able to do the things I enjoy like running, spending time with friends and family, and adventuring in nature. Diagnosis is not where the story ends. It's the beginning of the next chapter as I learn how to manage the up's and down's of symptoms and find my way forward to enjoy life.

Support Me:

We need early diagnosis, research, and a greater awareness of the impact this has on the lives of women and all who love them. Every mile and every dollar counts! Together we can make a difference. Thank you for your support!

XOXO
