My name is Jo Gifford, a designer, writer and blogger. I am mum to two beautiful twin girls, and I also happen to have chronic endometriosis which has affected my life for 17 years.

In 2012 I founded Project Endo, a social enterprise which gives daily digital support to women globally suffering with endometriosis.

Endometriosis affects as many as one in ten women. It can cause extreme pain, fatigue and depression, sometimes infertility, and often goes undiagnosed for many years.

I believe there are more options to dealing with endometriosis and chronic illness than painkillers and surgery. Nutrition needs to be part of the conversation, and educated endo warriors can help take control of their own journey with health by doing a lot of the work themselves.

 

Project Endo sends out daily support emails, Tweets and Facebook updates to a global audience of endometriosis suffers. In the last 4 months since launching we have built a huge global readership, a growing team of social media volunteers, and gained a wonderful team of experts who help us to give the information required to help women around the world with this as yet uncurable condition.

My aim for 2013 is to see Project Endo continue to grow, and to help as many women as possible with our work and digital support.

My top 3 health activist goals are:

  • to gain a considerable following throughout all social media
  • to secure finding to be able to grow Project Endo mor and to provide more support
  • to empower as many women as possible with endometriosis to take control of their pain by holisitc means and to find some hope.
