Prior to my diagnosis of stage four endo, I was financial sufficient and ran my own digital marketing business. But following surgery I was forced to sit up shop and I’ve been unable to work and make a living for myself since.
In Australia, a recent study shows that 89% of women who have surgery for Endo are unemployed 3 years later.
The problem is, many of the treatments we need to support our health are expensive and therefore inaccessible to the very women who need them the most.
Personally, I wouldn’t be where I am if I didn’t have a partner who worked as I’m currently on benefits.
That’s why I’ve decided to launch a social enterprise selling tea and heat packs, with 100% profits going to help Endo warriors gain the financial help they need to take care of themselves.
Im reaching out today to ask what financial challenges Endo causes you in your life? And what would you do differently if you could afford it?
I appreciate your help 😊
