Sallie’s story may echo familiar to women around the world who suffer from Endometriosis.
Sallie struggled for nearly 15 years with the debilitating pain of endometriosis before even learning the name of her medical condition, and her insurance refused to cover her first surgery.
“Many doctors told me nothing was wrong with me.”
“Professors tried to kick me out of Physical Therapy school because of my back pain.”
“Co-workers…called me lazy”
“But this pain was real. I was not crazy, and neither are any of you.”
“We deserve timely care.
We deserve multi-disciplinary care.
We deserve adequate medical coverage.
We deserve to know the cause of endometriosis
And most of all, we deserve a cure.” – Sallie Sarrel, March 28, 2015
