“Periods are powerful! Honestly, I am amazed at what my body can do each month, and it takes a lot of strength." – Emily Hoyle, The Good Blood

Jaimee Rae McCormack

Jaimee is a passionate Endo warrior, who founded the Endo Wall: Rising Awareness project. After suffering through 15 years of misdiagnosis (crazy, we know), Jaimee saw that there was a desperate need to raise awareness of his life-changing, chronic condition. She created an Endometriosis awareness mural on the wall of her house, using cans of spray paint. This lead to her story going viral! Jaimee is on a mission to bring together a community and raise awareness of Endometriosis to hopefully build more Endo Walls all over the world. A reminder to everyone that ‘Endometriosis Exists.’
