Hi! I’m 40 years old and I’m married to my best friend. I have stage IV endometriosis, an invisible illness that affects so many girls and women all over the world. There is no cure. Many gynecologists tell women to get pregnant, go on medication that mimics menopause or the birth control pill or have a hysterectomy. The gold standard to help endo sufferers is excision surgery. There are only a handful of skilled excision specialists around the world. I’m hoping one day to get to the CCECEC in Georgia for a complete excision surgery.
We’ve had a very trying time these last few years. We have no children, but we have 2 dogs. We had one embryo left from our IVF in 2011, our last embryo. That is where the title comes from.
This is our story. Thank you for reading.
