Imagine if Endometriosis could be detected by a simple blood test. If you could have your answers up to 10 years earlier. If you could know the answer you're looking for so much easier.
I have joined forces with Vinay Singh in hopes to help raise awareness and funding for his research. He has identified a bio marker that could make diagnoses so much easier. A blood test, that's it, no surgery to find out if you have Endometriosis.
As a sufferer of Endometriosis this is exciting news. We can avoid surgery for diagnosis and the use of hormone therapy when you may not need it. We shouldn't have to have surgery to find out you have Endometriosis and then have more surgery to actually treat the Endometriosis. We should not longer have to go through the trial and error process where you try Lupron or Visanne and if that doesn't help then it "must not be Endometriosis" but you don't actually know.
I hope that in working with someone like Vinay Singh we can change the way that we diagnose and find better, more effective treatment for Endometriosis while spreading awareness and changing the way Endometriosis and the people with it are treated.
Please if you can donate to Vinay Singh's go fund me campaign. Anything you can donate is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
My name is Kristen McRobie, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Endometriosis when I was 21.
