help me fight against endometriosis

Hi everyone! It’s no secret that for the last 13 years I’ve struggled severely with endometriosis. Just to give a little background info on what exactly endometriosis is, it is an extremely painful and chronic disorder where the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus, and can attach itself to other organs in your body. I’ve been fighting this disorder since I was 15 years old and I am now needing my 15th surgery. Unfortunately it has just gotten worse and spread throughout parts of my body. I need to undergo a surgery that will remove the lesions and also remove my uterus itself. This surgery is going to be different than all the others I’ve had. This surgery is going to remove my uterus completely and hopefully get rid of the endometriosis that is visible and prevent it from coming back, continuing to grow, and get rid of all the awful pain. In rare and severe cases endometriosis can caused collapsed lungs, get into your blood stream, can cause infertility etc. I was blessed to be able to have my two young children, with that being said my pregnancies weren’t easy, I had a lot of hospital stays, premature labors with both, and I am now unable to carry anymore. I am now a stay at home mom of these two little miracles, and $11,000 just isn’t accessible to us. The pain that comes with this condition is something that I don’t wish for anyone to ever have to go through. The surgery is very important and necessary in order for me to be healthy and be around for my two little ones. Any bit of money helps in such a great way so that I can be on the road to a healthier life for myself and my family. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read this and can help in anyway possible! It means so much to us!
