Words from Our Founder and CEO, Esmeralda Molina
"For 30 years, I experienced suffering caused by painful menstrual cramps and heavy bleeding between periods. Countless medications including hormone therapy in contraceptive forms, over-the-counter meds, and prescribed narcotics nulled my life for weeks at a time. Yoga and acupuncture could not avoid four surgeries in a six-year period. This was my life living with endometriosis.
I could have avoided all of this pain with early surgeries, but as a young woman, I had dreams of motherhood. I told my doctors that losing my ovaries and uterus was not an option.
Becoming a Mother
Motherhood came and blessed me with two beautiful daughters. Waiting on having those surgeries proved instantly worth it. As the years went by and my little girls became young women, I started to see my genes were passed on to them.
