Get to know some of the leaders
The Borders leader, Tao is founder of the group
Reaching out for support is never easy, coming to a support group can be especially difficult if you don't know anyone or haven't been before.
Here we want to highlight some of the leaders of the Scottish support groups, help put a face to the name and learn a little about their journey.
Tao's diagnosis came when she originally went to her GP regarding her fertility. She had also always experienced unexplained pains since starting her periods at 13. After her diagnosis in 2017 it became clear to Tao that there was no local support, which led her to create the online Facebook group in 2019. She became part of Endometriosis UK in 2020. 'I am passionate about supporting the people affected by endometriosis and I wanted to give back to our local community'.
