EndoTV: A Conversation with Deborah Bush

A new EndoTV episode is live with Deborah Bush, Chief Executive of Endometriosis New Zealand Director and founder of the World Endometriosis Organization (WEO). Deborah developed the world’s first Menstrual Health and Endometriosis program for schools in 1997, now endorsed by the World Endometriosis Society (WES) as the preferred education program world-wide. She developed a task force with the New Zealand Government to develop the Clinical Pathway to treat endometriosis in NZ. Today, she discusses how we “must be with our health decision-makers and making legislation changes.” Deborah is also one of the moderators of this weekend's conference

My Year of Tenacity, Patience, and Perseverance

Monae’ Smith spent this past year—already a year like none other—experiencing the worst endometriosis symptoms she’s ever had. She writes her journey to diagnosis and surgery beautifully; “I often think about the future and wonder what it will be like for me: Will I ever have children? Will the intense fetal-position pain come back? Will it be difficult to conceive and carry a child? Will new or worse symptoms come as I get older? To all these questions I pray for the very best, leave fear behind, and walk forward with hope one step at a time.”

Join the movement: Tell me you have endo without telling me you have endo. Share your video on social media and challenge a friend-o (friend with endo) to post their own video. Together we can spread awareness and help shed the stigma associated with the disease. See you on social!

She’s also hosting an Endo Chat on March 28 with four other streamers who have endometriosis. “Part of spreading awareness,” Erin says, “is telling your life story to help others through theirs.” Join the conversation on March 28!
