In March of 2018, I was diagnosed with the chronic illness I dreaded the most - Endometriosis. This means in short that I am in pain 80% of the day with pelvic cramps and pains, headaches, joint pains and extreme fatigue. And I am not alone. 1 in every 10 ladies suffer from this - and there is no cure!
As a result of the illness, women are losing their jobs, husbands and dignity. A normal day without pain is few and far in between and not every lady is lucky enough to have the treatments to control the pain we have to endure every day. The end result is around 176 million ladies worldwide feeling like they don't belong..that we are not good enough. I am saying EFF THAT and climbing Kilimanjaro to prove it!
On the 8th of July 2019 I will start my trek up the highest mountain in Africa. I will do so to give hope to the ladies suffering from this illness that we are not victims - we are fighters! The workouts are difficult and the pain gets unbearable at times - but my mind is set on reaching the top of that mountain, and doing so for all the ladies with Endometriosis.
Be a part of this journey with me.
