I have been having an internal chat with myself over the last couple days; about my WHY.
I’ve been asked recently as well by a few people in the medical industry about my WHY.
Why did I decide to become so vocal?
Why did I decide to document every shit thing happening in my life?
Why did I decide to be so open and honest about all that I experience?
This little girl in this photo is a huge portion of that why.
She looks up to me.
I am a huge influence for her.
She strives to be just like me when she gets older.
She is not my daughter, but she is like a niece.
My why is for her and the 10% of girls JUST LIKE HER.
I hope to change the way this disease is diagnosed and treated for the generations of women coming up behind me.
I don’t want the generation behind me to have to face the 7-10 year diagnosed time frame.
I don’t want the generation behind me to be told over and over again that a hysterectomy will cure them.
I don’t want the generations behind me to be mislead by your run of the mill OB-Gyn.
There is so much education that needs to be brought to light and brought to the table about proper care, the gold standard of care and a lot of women with the disease are unaware of it.
I hope to bring awareness and advocacy of proper information and resources in order for these women to receive better care in a quicker time frame.
It only takes one drop of rain to create a ripple.
We suffered enough, let’s turn our experiences into a benefit for those behind us who don’t know what they are up against.
