Fela M'tima Dunfee
Fela M’tima Dunfee is a 27 year old artist and writer from Chicago, IL. She was diagnosed with endometriosis at age 23. In the years following, she underwent handfuls of complex surgeries because of the extent of the disease. It had covered and intertwined organs like the bowels, bladder, uterus, ovaries, and diaphragm. Through all these surgeries, she has always written on the subject and communicated and learned from other women in the community. Being an advocate for this disease gives her hope that someday soon there will be more education, funding, and research. Her biggest goal is to write stories and articles that make other women feel validated and less isolated in a disease that can really strip away at every aspect of our lives. She is currently working on a zine about her experience with endometriosis.
