Doing Our Part To Make A Difference
Thank you for visiting EndoArmy and seeking to further your understanding of endometriosis.
Endometriosis is one of the common diseases most people have never heard about. Endometriosis has been shown to affect 1 in 10 women. However, that number may be closer to 1 in 5 considering how so many cases go undiagnosed. On average it takes 7 to 10 years after the onset of symptoms before patients receive a proper diagnosis.
Here at EndoArmy we are determined to change the statistics. We hope to educate endo warriors so they can receive the best care possible. We hope to educate the medical community so warriors with endometriosis can be diagnosed sooner. Lastly, we hope to educate the public so that warriors with endometriosis will be treated with the respect and understanding they deserve.
How are we going about all this education? Currently, our primary method of spreading education and awareness is through social media. We are developing our Facebook, Instagram, Podcasts, and YouTube channels to share information. We are creating podcasts with specialists to reach as many people as possible. We are also doing our part to educate warriors in our local communities through our community groups.
The ride campaign is our next step to take education further. As Kianna rides horseback across the country she will be speaking at high schools, colleges, and news reporters to share information about endometriosis. Kianna is also inviting others to join the ride campaign all over the world be it on their horses, bikes, snowboards, surfboards, etc… to join the EndoArmy in our efforts to spread awareness for endometriosis with a united global language.
During this year, for launch in 2020, we will continue to partner with other warriors and medical professionals to create an online information superhighway.
As the EndoArmy grows with base camps across the globe, our 10-year objective is to open regional educational and resource centers. These centers will be a place where patients can go for medical case counseling, where professionals can host educational seminars, and support groups can meet. Please follow our social media pages and join our mailing list to stay up to date with the latest developments.
