Helping women with chronic illnesses

Endometriosis Series

Extra extra! Here is some exciting news!

Amanda Fisher of Amanda’s Patch

Regular readers here most likely recognize Amanda from seeing her here before. For newer readers, Amanda is an endometriosis patient who is passionate about endometriosis awareness. Yesterday marked the publication of the first piece in her series on
iVillage UK:

Endometriosis – the ‘invisible’ illness

Congratulations to Amanda for becoming a published columnist on iVillage UK!

Amanda is doing great things to generate endometriosis awareness. Please show Amanda your support by commenting on her iVillage UK article and by clicking “like” on that site for Facebook for this first article in a series.

Also, please check out her own site:

This is a wonderful opportunity for endometriosis patients to rally around Amanda and support her as she sets out to write a series about endometriosis and trying to conceive. Please pay her a visit… on iVillage UK and on her blog.

It’s very exciting to have Amanda speaking out about endometriosis in such a prominent forum. If endometriosis patients visit iVillage UK in droves, the site will recognize what a smart move they’ve made in electing to publish Amanda’s series.

Last but not least, if you haven’t yet signed the endometriosis awareness petition… please consider taking just a moment to do so by clicking below:


If you are interesting in posting the petition badge above on your site, please leave a comment on this post and I’ll get the code out to you. Thank you for supporting the 89 million endometriosis patients worldwide who deserve prompt diagnosis and top-notch treatment for this chronic illness!

The link that says “Endometriosis – the ‘invisible’ illness” leads to page 2 of the article. Page 1 is here.

Jeanne, you are just the best… thank you for posting this on your blog!

Yes, it would be great if as many Endo patients as possible visited iVillage and left a comment or clicked the “like” button, as the more interest there is the more likely iVillage will be to keep my series running!

If any readers want to contact me in relation to Endo or trying to conceive (or of course both!) then they are very welcome to do so either via leaving a comment here that will alert me to them (as I get email updates on comments here) or popping over to my blog and contacting me there. The more, the merrier, I say!

Thank you once again for all your support, Jeanne. This is an amazing opportunity to spread awareness of Endometriosis on a much larger forum than my own blog, so I appreciate all the support you are giving.

Amanda xx

I see that. Thanks.


My pleasure!

Yes, I am hoping we can get as many people as possible (endometriosis patients or not) to visit iVillage UK, comment there, and click the Facebook “like” button there on your article. It’s so exciting that iVillage decided to have an entire series of your articles!

This really is a wonderful opportunity to spread endometriosis awareness further!

Please, everyone, do take a moment to pop over to iVillage UK to support Amanda in her efforts at endometriosis awareness! Thank you!

I had already clicked “like” on the iVillageUK article itself (and commented there). I just clicked “like” on the iVillage UK page on Facebook itself. I’m about to look there for a link to your article. 😉
