When you were diagnosed with your illness: Surgically diagnosed in September 2018

Career: Registered Nurse 

Hobbies: Hockey, Yoga and Netflix

Why you wanted to be apart of our ambassador team: Because I want to make change in the community. These products have helped me with battling my disease

Favourite quote: “You don’t get it until you get it” - this quote relates to me so much as one of my best friends had endometriosis/Adenomyosis and I never really understood it until I was diagnosed myself

Meet Rosy!
Country: England, UK
Describe yourself in 3 words: Loyal, optimistic, funny (I make myself laugh at least!)

The most important thing you want people to know about your illness: To be honest, for people to simply know what it is would be half the battle!

Hobbies: Singing, music and spending time with my dogs
Why you wanted to be apart of our ambassador team: The Uterus Project is an invaluable resource for women, like myself, who suffer from adenomyosis and related conditions. There is so little information out there and even fewer treatment options for us, so it’s about time a project like this was created to offer women some more options, allowing them to take control back over their lives!
Favourite quote: 'A woman is like a tea bag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.’ - Eleanor Roosevelt

AMBER

Meet Amber!
Location: Australia
Describe yourself in 3 words: caring, driven & positive
When you were diagnosed with your illness: I was diagnosed with Endometriosis via laparoscopy in June 2018. Suffered for about 5 years before then and now investigating Adenomyosis. 
The most important thing you want people to know about your illness: wow! So many things. Mainly that it is hard, it’s seriously hard to have a disease that I believe has ruined my life but people around me can’t see it. To struggle with the symptoms we do daily means we are fighters, we deal with it because we have to but that to other people is us being fine and coping. But, sadly, a lot of us are not fine. So be caring! Listen and learn about the disease if you know someone who is going through it. 
Career: I am a Registrar of the Victorian Courts, I am between Courts and Tribunals case managing matters & assisting court/tribunal users. 
Hobbies: I love to spend time with my partner and dog. Laying in bed watching Netflix. Getting creative with DIY projects. Helping people. 
Why you wanted to be part of our ambassador team: I wanted to be part of this team for more reasons then one. Firstly, the fact I am able to work with a gorgeous business who is ACTUALLY interested on how their products really make you feel, even if you didn’t like them or they didn’t help you.. they want to know! They want all the feedback they can get in order to make The Uterus Project the best it can be. It’s run by an absolute gorgeous soul. It’s a platform that wants to help people like myself, people struggling and looking for anything that helps. It’s a business that is welcoming, supportive & overall amazing. I was and am still so impressed and I wanted to be a part of that! 
Favourite quote: this is such a hard question!! I’d say it’s -
“Things to remember: 
- Tomorrow is a new day. 
- Making mistakes is part of life. 
- Saying ‘no’ is okay. 
- Not everyone has to like you. 
- Beauty & Strength come from within.”

ELLA

Meet Ella!

Location: Tasmania

Describe yourself in 3 words: introvert, empathetic, resilient

When you were diagnosed with your illness: On August 10, 2018 after my first Endometriosis excision surgery (on my 6 month wedding anniversary). 

The most important thing you want people to know about your illness: That I’m not necessarily unreliable - my illness is. I used to be a major busybody, who still believes 10 minutes early is on time and on time is late. Now you’re lucky if I even make it! It’s been hard to accept that I’m a late / flaky person now.

Career/study): in my final year of a Bachelor of Media and working a few casual jobs in retail and ICT.

Hobbies: I absolutely love my church and look forward to going every Sunday, occasionally serving in the early childhood child-minding centre. I also am obsessed with my Black and Tan sausage dog puppy, Jenny.

Why you wanted to be apart of our ambassador team: I’ve basically decided my life’s mission is to raise awareness about Endometriosis and help as many women as possible avoid the horrible waiting period between first symptoms and diagnosis. I also am really interested in natural remedies and using food as medicine, and I felt all of my personal beliefs were aligned with The Uterus Project’s!

Favourite quote: “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (‭John‬ ‭16‬:‭33‬ NLT) 

I also LOVE the story about Jesus’ interaction with a woman who had constant menstrual bleeding for TWELVE YEARS. I truly believe she had a uterine disease like me and I love her boldness. Read Matthew chapter 9, verses 20-22 to get the full story.

Meet Kimberli!

Location: United States
Describe yourself in 3 words: Strong, compassionate, big-hearted
When you were diagnosed with your illness: Endometriosis. March 27, 2017
The most important thing you want people to know about your illness:
Some days are better than others. Some days I can hold it together, while others I fall apart. There is no special cure or treatment that will get rid of it. It is up to me to try and fight, every day.
Career: I am a substitute teacher along with working on a few side jobs from home. I have an online clothes boutique. Along with becoming a life coach-helping others like myself, who are suffering, stuck, need help or guidance with their life.
Hobbies: Yoga, meditation, reading, blasting 90s music, dancing in the kitchen, cooking + baking, shopping, spending time with family, taking long walks in nature, traveling
Why you wanted to be apart of our ambassador team: I wanted to become a part of your ambassador team because as an endometriosis sufferer, it is so amazing to have a place to find amazing products to help me through my painful times. I also love that The Uterus Project not only has amazing products, but is also raising awareness on uterine diseases. Since my diagnosis, raising awareness and helping others is all I wanted to do. So I feel like this is just the perfect opportunity for me to do so.

KAYLA

Pictured: @notanotherhealthblog

My name is Kayla Jayne and I am a proud representative of The Uterus Project.

A lot of people know me as ‘notanotherhealthblog’ on Instagram. I created notanotherhealthblog when I was diagnosed with Adenomyosis.

I was diagnosed post-surgery at the age of 21. Adenomyosis can be caused from invasive surgery, which is unfortunately what happened to me. It affects the walls of the uterus and can cause horrific pain. I wanted to turn my pain into something more than a condition I was going to live with.

My page, notanotherhealthblog, is known for giving honest reviews on products, sharing recipes, and health tips that have helped my journey. When I started my journey, I was a meat eater with chronic pain. Most days I could not walk if I ate inflammation triggering foods. Because of this I have been an advocate for fasting, plant-based diet and natural products- all of which, saved me from being in pain.

Today I am pain free 80% of the time. I wanted to be a part of something that helped others which is why I have helped bring to life The Uterus Project in hopes others will benefit from this amazing online store.

 The Uterus Project aims to inspire and shine a light on chronic illnesses. Many women who are first diagnosed with Adenomyosis frantically google and find zero answers or support systems. The Uterus Project is aiming to let women know they are not alone.
