Description

Do you have Endometriosis or know someone who does? Or maybe you think you may it?

Join us for a free screening of the EndoWhat documentary, followed by a Q&A panel hosted by Dr. Sally Rafie of the Pharmacists Clinic, Sister Donatella Soul of the San Diego Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and Lisa Howard of Bloomin' Uterus.

Come to meet other EndoWarriors, like yourself. Bring your friends and family and educate them about our illness. Empower yourself and educate others. Together we can do great things!

Seating is limited to 250 people, so please reserve your tickets today.

**

Endometriosis or “endo” is the most common, devastating disease that most people have never heard of. It affects 1 in 10 girls and women. That’s approximately 176,000,000 people on the planet.

Despite its prevalence, women see an average of 8 doctors for 10 years before diagnosis. During that time, many are forced to miss school, leave careers they love, abandon dreams of having children and watch their personal relationships suffer. They’re often told incorrectly by doctors that pregnancy & hysterectomy are cures and that pain is normal or in their heads. After diagnosis, they’re usually prescribed an array of drugs & undergo multiple, ineffective surgeries.

It’s time to break that cycle. It’s time for a new normal that doesn’t mean multiple doctors, drugs, surgeries, misdiagnoses and years of pain. The only film of its kind, Endo What? gives an accurate, up-to-date base of knowledge straight from the experts.

It’s a film to educate & put power where it belongs – in the hands of girls & women.

And if you aren't aware, we have our 5th annual Endometriosis Awareness & Support Walk on March 30th at NTC Park at Liberty Station. Space is limited and attendance is free, but please register. https://bloominuterus.com/2019-endo-walk/
