Why Lorelei loves Endometriosis New Zealand...
“In my job I am repeatedly faced with interviewing patients struggling under the burden of chronic illness and pain. Their bravery in the face of obstacles is humbling. But one can never underestimate the uplifting power and healing of genuine support … not just from dedicated medical staff and family … but also organisations agitating for their future health and happiness. The NZ Endometriosis Foundation is one such organisation … playing a vital role in educating young and old about the condition, encouraging support groups to flourish and agitating continuously for genuine improvements for women through the health system. Thousands of women and their families have benefitted from the Foundation’s strength and support ..it’s a national treasure”.
One News Health Reporter Lorelei Mason has been a supporter of the New Zealand Endometriosis Foundation for many years and is a former Foundation Board member.
The Christchurch mother of three children is a firm believer in the power of education and support to help women with endometriosis, and those who love them, forge a brighter future.
