Seven Islands Skincare is a proud supporter of Fight ENDO Foundation Australia. It’s been a long dream of mine to be able to support the challenges faced by women with Endometriosis – a condition I have endured since I was 14 years of age.
The Fight ENDO Foundation is a nationally accredited non-profit organisation and charity that provides a place of aid and hope by ensuring that all women suffering with endometriosis are able to live their best lives, unrestricted by the condition.
The Founder and CEO Marina Kyriakou, is the only person I know who had to wait longer for a diagnosis than I did. More correctly, I should say had to ‘fight’ longer for a diagnosis than I did.
Marina has experienced a long and agonising journey with endometriosis from the age of 16 to the age of 40. She is committed to the disease’s research and is very compassionate for those suffering from the disease. After undergoing several treatments and multiple surgeries, she was forced to make the difficult decision to undergo a hysterectomy and a bowel resection.
Unfortunately, endometriosis prevented her from conceiving her own children since it spread to her main organs. Marina hopes that she will be able to inspire and educate the next generation, as well as raise awareness and promote research for a brighter future.
With our passions and history very closely aligned – I proudly join Marina in the fight against ENDO.
