Fashionista Fundraiser for Endometriosis Awareness

So I was all set to do an outfit post but then my dog Rocko started pesting me so I would let him in on the photos for this last Fashionista Fundraiser for Endometriosis Awareness post. So, I decided to save my outfit for another day, and post some cute pictures of Rocko in his scarf posing with my endo sign. He's cuter than I am anyway!!!


Again, we are doing this fundraiser because there is no known cure for endometriosis. There are plenty of ways to control it or prolong surgery. But I want a cure. I need a cure! I think it is so fantastic that other illnesses have such strong support systems, awareness education, and huge fundraisers. Endometriosis really does not. Go ahead, ask ten women that you know what endometriosis is. I guarantee you not all ten can explain. The scary thing is, one in ten women will get this condition. Education about endo is so important. How can you know the symptoms if you don't even know what endometriosis is?!?!


A huge thank-you goes out to all of my friends, family, and readers...as well as fellow bloggers that have been a part of this, and those of you that have reposted this fundraiser. Your support means more than anything. When your health has you feeling isolated and alone, it really means a lot to have all the kind emails, comments, and donations being made.


Please make a donation today! All donations will go directly to the Endometriosis Foundation of America. I ask that you make your donation via our secure PayPal link. Please take note that we are raising money through this Friday, October 5th. So get your donations in today!!!
