Why is creating awareness for Endometriosis so important to me?
For as long as I could remember, becoming a 'real' woman was a liberating feeling, like WOW! - I have my period! Now I know what other girls are going through and when i'm older I can have children! Little did I, along with 1 out of 10 women know that from then on, there would be complications with our day to day lives. There is still so much all of us don't know about Endometriosis, how it is caused, we have yet to find a cure for this chronic disease and it's my plan to get it so well recognised that more specialists can help women who are still yet to be diagnosed and get the government on our side. Let's help END endo and the struggles that come with it. Do you know it takes an average of ten years to be diagnosed with Endo? TEN long years. Why does this take so long? Why aren't we talking about this more?! This is where I come in. With the power of photography and working with strong and courageous women, here's the first step of trying to get this illness recognised.

Help spread the word!
Project Endo is about making this disease heard and spoken more of. If you or anyone you know lives with Endometriosis, I urge you to get involved, contact me and let's have a chat! Nothing will be done if it is kept in the dark. I would love to hear from you!
