who we are

We are ... one in eight.

We are ... your wives, partners, daughters, sisters, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and even your enemies.

We are ... sufferers or survivors of endometriosis, PCOS, miscarriage, repeat loss, cancer, blocked tubes, premature ovarian failure, birth defects, immunology disorders, hormone dysfunction, unexplained circumstances, and more.

We are ... all ages, all shapes, all sizes, all colors, all religions, and all backgrounds - all fighting the same battle.

We are ... scarred. Physically and emotionally.

We are ... infertile.

We have feelings. Respect them. Don't ignore them.

Don't ignore our struggle.

Don't ignore us.
