|The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has listed March as National Endometriosis Awareness Month.
Let us continue to help educate the world about the realities of Endometriosis! Let’s fight for more humane care and treatment!
Here are some things you can do:
The Endometriosis Research Center is campaigning for the creation of a special United States Postal Service stamp to help raise awareness of Endometriosis. The purpose of creating such a stamp is for “honoring the lives of the millions of American women and girls struggling with this disease and to bring about widespread National awareness which will hopefully lead to better recognition of Endometriosis, more effective treatments, and ultimately – one day – a cure.”
They have a petition that you can sign, saying you really want this stamp in circulation – Sign the Petition today!
- Fellow endometriosis blogger Jeanne writes, “Approximately 5.5 million women and girls in North America have endometriosis. An estimated 89 million worldwide have it. Yet it remains “under-the-radar”. The general public is largely unaware of it or misunderstand how debilitating it can be.”Please sign her petition to Create Endometriosis Awareness & Understanding.
Be sure to also check out Jeanne’s blog for more ways to get involved!!
Encourage conversation about Endometriosis with this lovely totebag! Below the Rosie the Riveter image, it reads, “Awareness, Education, A Cure.” This bag comes from the Endometriosis Research Center’s (ERC) online store. Buying one or more of these bags not only helps the environment, because you’re cutting down on usage of paper and plastic bags at the grocery, but it also helps the ERC in their endo research, enriches their programs and of course, helps others learn about endometriosis!
Another way to strike up conversation about Endometriosis, and with a bright yellow shirt to boot!
