Providing information, support and understanding will have a lasting impact for all women in Queensland touched by endometriosis, and EA (Qld) is committed to this mission.

During Endometriosis Awareness Week (2 – 8 March 2009) EA (Qld) will hold Meetings in Townsville, Mackay and Bundaberg – all regional centres they have not visited previously. The total distance to be travelled for these 3 meetings is over 4,400 kilometres……!

The gorgeous quilt to be raffled

EA (Qld) celebrated their 20th anniversary in August 2008, with good press coverage. They used this event as a major fundraiser to “raffle off” a queen size quilt pieced together by Judi Cogliati and her quilting buddies, Traci, Mel and friends, raising $1,420, which will also be put towards regional awareness visits in 2009. (The lucky winner was Rosemary van Haeften from Ashgrove!).

To keep the awareness going, another quilt has been created and is now being raffled off. This project has been extended to be featured in a nationally distributede quiltig magazine Quilters Companion.
