Last September, Kira underwent diagnostic laparoscopy through which she received a definitive diagnosis of Endometriosis. What is Endometriosis? It is a disease in which tissue similar to the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) is found outside the uterus on other parts of the body. It affects 1 in 10 women worldwide during their most productive years, and can impact all aspects of their lives – school, careers, finances, relationships, and overall well-being as the symptoms are extremely painful. At the end of this month Kira will travel to the Bay Area to undergo advanced excision surgery with an internationally renowned endometriosis and pelvic pain specialist Dr. Andrew Cook. Dr. Cook employs a multidisciplinary approach, utilizing leading edge, traditional western medicine and alternative integrative medicine. He is confident that through surgery and continued holistic care, Kira’s health and vitality can be restored, greatly improving her quality of life.
Kira’s kind heart and gentle soul have touched the lives of so many, and her tenacious resolve to heal and dedication to doing whatever it takes is an inspiration to us all. It is our hope that providing relief from the significant financial burden of this highly specialized surgery, we will enable Kira to focus fully on her journey toward health. Please consider contributing whatever you’re able….every bit helps! All donations to Kira’s Go Fund Me account as well as all good wishes are greatly appreciated.
