Meeting 15th October 2019

Our speaker this month was former model Carla Cressy who told us all about her terrible struggles with endometriosis which lead her to set up her own charity – ‘Women with Endometriosis’. Not only does she support women suffering from the effects of the disease she is also raising awareness of the disease which will hopefully increase early diagnosis rates.

Sir David Amess is a trustee of the charity and has helped Carla speak at Government level. She has also made contact with New York based Dr Masahide Kanayama, one of the world’s leading specialists in endometriosis and he has agreed to be linked to the charity and its important work.
