for those living
with endometriosis

What we are all about

Endometriosis Events is an online community for individuals living with endometriosis. Join our journey in raising awareness as we create events around the Greater Toronto Area and Canada for the 1 in 10 women affected. 


We aim to create a positive space where women are feeling empowered and their stories are being heard. We hope our advocacy will encourage an ope dialogue and make an impact on the critical issues of this condition. 

We are doing
the right thing,
at the right time

Like the world-changers who support our organization, we are focused on making a long-term impact by helping kids living in poverty. We have a bold vision: graduating healthy, educated, empowered and employed young adults from our program.

The students supported by our programs face major barriers to accessing education; many are orphaned, living in extreme poverty or dealing with other difficult family circumstances.

What makes us diferent?

Community centers

We’ve built 80 centers globally. There, kids get access to education centers, medical offices, libraries, playgrounds and more.

Data-driven approach

We track measurable progress with a research agency to prove we’re making a real impact on our kids.


Programs change by age and country to ensure that our kids graduate healthy, educated, empowered, and employed.

Leah Haynes

I am an endometriosis advocate who mixes personal experience with this condition and a dedication to helping others to co-host Endometriosis Events. 


After years of intense pain, I was officially diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis. My diagnosis has allowed me to name what I’ve been battling and has given me the strength and encouragement to make a change.


I have a passion for raising awareness through various functions in the Greater Toronto Area and a support group, which I help facilitate, for those with suspected and diagnosed endometriosis. I have a history of coordinating special events from my childhood and have let this passion grow into a great cause benefiting many.

Since the age of 12 I have always had excruciating period pain that would make me nauseated. I would curl up in a ball with a hot water bottle pressed against my stomach to try and relieve the pain. Sadly this pain eventually became my new normal. 


In 2017, I was officially diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis. During that year I had my first laporoscopy, and my appendix and both fallopian tubes were removed. Since then my passion for raising awareness and connecting with my fellow warriors has inspired me to help launch Endometriosis Events. 


Although there are moments when endometriosis has filled me with anger and sadness. I am grateful that it has also empowered me to use my voice and be an advocate in the endometriosis community.
