PRINT & SUPPORT! March is Endometriosis Awareness!
On March 25th (May 13th in Canada) there will be the World Wide Endo March!
Did you just think "Endo What?"
Endometriosis hit at least 10% of world wide women, but being a commonly dismissed illness, it takes nearly a decade prior diagnosis.
Endometriosis is a systemic disease with numerous immune & endocrine malfunctions that sometime result in misplaced tissue, similar to the lining of the uterus, but not exactly the same, resulting in chronic pain and many other symptoms. It's also one of the lead causes of infertility and there is no definitive cure up to date.
Why is endometriosis awareness important?
- Because many women are surrounded by family, friends and colleagues who don’t understand how profound the physical and emotional effects of endometriosis can be.
- Because even after waiting an average of 7 to 9 years to get an endometriosis diagnosis, many women can't access effective treatment for endometriosis.
- Because there is very little research on endometriosis, compared to other diseases with similar impacts.
This need to be printed in YELLOW, as it is the color for Endometriosis Awareness.
I permit Commercial use of this model in order to allow raising money for ENDOMETRIOSIS research, support and education in your country, but please, don't speculate on this model. It is already a very expensive illness right because it NEEDS more education and research.
You may print it smaller for a pendant, otherwise the current size is good for pins and keychains. You can highlight the text with a sharpie.
