SarahFest screening of EndoWhat?

Join us at Shelter on Van Buren on September 28 at 7 pm for a special screening with the filmmakers. 

IT'S TIME FOR A NEW NORMAL. 

A normal where women with endometriosis know the facts and can make empowered choices. A normal that doesn’t involve multiple doctors, surgeries, misdiagnoses and years of pain.

The only film of its kind, Endo What presents solid, accurate information straight from the experts. They answer the questions you have, but aren’t able to ask. 

They answer the questions you never even knew to ask.

JUST ONE CAVEAT. (Spoiler alert)

There’s no quick fix. No easy answer. But, it is possible. You can live a full, vibrant life with endometriosis. You may have endo, but endo does not have you. 

It’s time to make a real & lasting change in the narrative of this disease. It’s time to stop the vicious cycle of misinformation. The new normal starts now. It starts here with you. 

Take this film & take control of your life.
