The Endometriosis Primrose Awards
Each year we have taken great pride in congratulating all those nominated for a Primrose Award. Each nomination is a 'thank you' from someone fighting Endometriosis, or caring for someone who is, and its a powerful affirmation of optimism. The winner in each category will receive an award and will be included in our winners gallery!
CLOSING DATE 2018 FEBRUARY 28TH
The Award for Complementary Therapist
By definition, Complementary therapies are systems of healthcare that treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of their disease. Modern medicine is increasingly aware of complementary therapy techniques and these are an essential part of any treatment of a long term condition like Endometriosis. We recognise this and invite nominations for that therapist who has made a difference to your quality of life and symptoms. Nutritionists, reflexology, exercise, mindfulness,/meditation, yoga .....! Get nominating !
The Primrose Friend Award Friends make all the difference, being there when we need them and helping us through the good times and the bad. For some of us living with Endometriosis, it is the help of friends that can not only help us heal and recover, but also improve our quality of life. They take the strain and burden of responsibility from us whilst we recover from surgery or painful symptoms, cheering us up when we need it most. If you have a friend who has helped you through your Endometriosis journey then please nominate them and let them know how much they are appreciated.
The Primrose Family Award
Just like friends, our family can be there for us through the hardest of times. Childcare, transport, advocating, nursing us when we are in pain and helping us even when they are having their own troubles. If you have a family member who has made your Endometriosis journey more bearable then please take a moment to nominate them and let them know how grateful you are.
The Primrose Medical Award
Medical intervention, either by a GP, Nurse, Consultant or anyone else on your diagnosis and treatment journey, who has offered not only understanding and empathy but also made a positive impact on your overall well-being and outcomes too. It is sometimes hard finding the right medical support as so much still needs to be done to raise awareness of Endometriosis. However, there are many amazing Doctors, Nurses and Consultants who understand what a devastating illness Endometriosis can be. If you have experienced one of these amazing people then please nominate them and show them how much they are appreciated.
The Primrose Advocate of the Year Award
This award is for that special person, who has shown both understanding of Endometriosis and a passion to raise awareness and increase understanding amongst others. Do you know someone who has gone the extra mile? Who deserves recognition for what they do for others? If so, then please nominate them for this special award, even if you have nominated them in the above categories we invite you to make an extra nomination if you feel they deserve this award.
