WE ARE GETTING A GREAT RESPONSE ON THE PETITION FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS AWARENESS & EDUCATION! SO FAR, WE HAVE PEOPLE FROM THE U.S., THE UK, AND SOUTH AFRICA ON THE PETITION. WE NEED MORE SIGNATURES, THOUGH! THE MORE SIGNATURES WE GET THE BETTER OUR CHANCES FOR GETTING QUALITY INFORMATION ABOUT ENDOMETRIOSIS DISSEMINATED IN THE MASS MEDIA.

THE ONLINE PETITION IS FAST & EASY. IT EVEN HAS A FIELD WHERE YOU CAN ADD A COMMENT ABOUT HOW ENDO HAS HAS AFFECTED YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES. ANYONE CAN SIGN! SO GET YOUR HUSBANDS, FRIENDS, BOYFRIENDS, COUSINS, ETC. TO TAKE JUST 2 MINUTES TO SIGN THIS PETITION. HOPEFULLY IF WE CAN GET A GOOD SIZED PETITION TOGETHER AND SUBMITTED TO OPRAH & TO THE VIEW BY THE END OF THE WEEK, WE CAN GET DECENT ENDO COVERAGE IN THE MEDIA TO COUNTERACT LAST WEEK'S MISINFORMATION.

THIS ILLNESS AFFECTS ABOUT *89 MILLION* WOMEN AND GIRLS AROUND THE WORLD! YET MOST OF THE PUBLIC HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF IT (UNTIL LAST WEEK WHEN THE CONFUSING PRESS RELEASES CAME OUT FROM THE 'DANCING WITH THE STARS' CONTESTANTS BEING DIAGNOSED WITH ENDOMETRIOSIS). LET'S GIVE ENDOMETRIOSIS AS AN ILLNESS AND ENDOMETRIOSIS PATIENTS THEMSELVES THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE BY GETTING ACCURATE INFORMATION OUT TO THE PUBLIC!!!

JUST CLICK HEAR TO TAKE ABOUT 2 MINUTES OUT OF YOUR DAY TO SIGN A PETITION CREATING ENDOMETRIOSIS AWARENESS & UNDERSTANDING!

*************

INITIAL POST:

Please sign the petition below. The goal is to lobby the Oprah show or The View in an effort to increase endometriosis awareness and understanding by having a story aired about endometriosis.

With Julianne Hough and Lacey Schwimmer both announcing they have been diagnosed with endometriosis this week, NOW is the time to ask the national media to focus on this illness that affects an estimated 5.5 million women in North America and 89 million worldwide.

Endometriosis potentially affects careers, education, relationships, fertility, quality of life, pain level, and much more.

It's important for the public to have a basic understanding of an illness that affects so many... often profoundly.

Please just click below to view & sign the petition.

Create Endometriosis Awareness & Understanding

Let's get the word out to as many people as possible! You do NOT have to be an endometriosis patient to sign this petition. If you have a friend, aquaintance, or loved one with endometriosis... please sign this petition so that we can educate the public about this potentially devastating illness.

For more information, please see recent posts:

Our numbers are steadily increasing on the petition but we need your help!

The more signatures we get the better our chances of endometriosis being featured ACCURATELY in the media!

I'm hoping to email Oprah and "The View" by the end of next week. Please help!

ANYONE wanting to create awareness can sign.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN ENDOMETRIOSIS PATIENT TO SIGN!
