One in Ten New Zealand Women and girls affects this common disease called Endometriosis.
Endometriosis (pronounced: 'end-oh-me-tree-oh-sis') occurs when tissue very similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is found in places outside the uterus where it shouldn’t be.
Some of the associated symptoms include extreme pain, diarrhoea with a period, boating, painful intercourse, lower back pain, tiredness and low energy, mood disturbances and bladder pain.
Inline with the 25th Birthday celebration of Endometriosis New Zealand (ENZ) and Endometriosis Awareness Month(1-31 March )will be running a fundraiser on sella.co.nz called The Big Hug, auctioning such items as a 2009 SmartCar with a $1 reserve, designer clothing packages and celebrity experiences.
So, join The Big Hug and promote awareness of endometriosis to help all women and girls in your home, school, work and community to overcome this silent epidemic! and the Style of Life supporting this kind of campaign.
