Endometriosis is a chronic disease where tissues that are normally found lining the womb is found elsewhere in the body. These tissues form lesions which are often found on the ovaries and other organs within a woman’s pelvis. In very rare cases, they could be found in the lungs and brain. Women with the disorder readily feel pain, irregular bleeding and have problems getting pregnant. The Endo march is a platform to educate, empower, and effect change to the debilitating disorder.
