I am a 31yr old, single momma that unfortunately has had to deal with ovarian cancer, endometriosis and a radical hysterectomy/ect. I ended up having a total of 20 surgery's; all between the ages of 24-27.
Physically, I am doing a lot better; mentally, I am devastated and lost. So I have decided to take on the challenge of being an advocate, with the hope of eventually starting a non-profit.
I am hoping that this will not only help me heal & move on, but of course also help others. To my surprise though, many people do not want to hear/learn anything about "gynecology" illness'. They tend to become offended, disgusted or just flat out believe these problems are not true or serious illness'.
Right now when I registered with CafeMom, I noticed or have not been able to find a group for these illness'. So I would like to try to get one started, but I'm not sure if any of you would be interested?
