Endometriosis is a painful, incurable disease that affects 176 million individuals worldwide. The symptoms
can range from mild to incapacitating. Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus implants abnormally outside of the uterus in the pelvic cavity to form lesions, cysts, nodules and other growths.
The Endometriosis Network Canada is a volunteer-run, incorporated, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to facilitate & promote a patient centred approach to managing endometriosis. We aim to reduce the diagnostic average from 8 – 12 years that frequently follows visiting multiple doctors, receiving conflicting or incorrect information and inevitably lost productivity and self worth.
There are currently no resources for Canadians with endometriosis. The Endometriosis Network Canada is striving to create education, support, awareness and resources for those with endometriosis, and those affected by it. Please consider donating to our cause.
