My Sister needs your help ❤️

My sister Tina, is 34 years old and has stage 4 Endometriosis, a Chronic Illness that effects 1 in 10 women with no cure to date. It causes her to have debilitating pain and is now at the point where normal everyday life is just a dream away. It's an illness with no warning signs and literally stops her in her tracks. She is in desperate need of surgery immediately however the process through public health system is extremely lengthy. And being a New Zealand citizen living in Australia she does not qualify for any financial assistance. Tina also works for herself so you can imagine if she's unable to work she's unable to earn an income. Time is of the essence for Tina, she needs help now more than ever to get back to normality. It's been a rough 3 years with her illness and after numerous medical trials, surgeries and constant medication daily....she has no option but to have a hysterectomy surgery :(
This is when surgeons remove her uterus to stop organs from sticking and Endometriosis spreading to other organs (again). It takes a very large problem area out of her body reducing her pain to a manageable state. It means going forward Tina will never conceive her children but this is the sacrifice she must make to gain quality of life!

Her Symptoms
- Sharp pain causing dizziness and blackouts
- Pain in back, stomach, hips and legs both sharp and radiating
- constant fatigue from pain surges
- migraines
- unstable hormones
- pain passing urine and bowels
- pain before, during and after intermacy
- pain after movement (any form of exercise)
- hot and cold sweats
And the list go on.........

This illness has progressed and is classified ast severe stages, its already spread to her bowel, bladder, uterus, intestines and possibly other areas in the last few months.

Every bit of your help is needed and appreciated. Help Tina get her life back! #endowarrior #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness
