Got Spit?

If you do, would you mind sharing it with the good people over at Juneau Biosciences? They are currently researching the genes that play a roll in predisposing women to Endometriosis. I heard about their research and got really excited to do my part, especially since all it takes is a little spit! I've put up a banner/link to their website on my sidebar, but here it is again for easier access if anyone is interested! End To Endo!

Here is the package they sent me with the collection material, and paper work.

Spit, spit, spit! It looks like a whole lot but actually you just fill to the line and the rest is a preservative. Took me about 3-4 spits to hit the line.

All done! No postage required even! :)

Here is a video about this research and your part in it, should you choose to participate.

I participated in this study a few months ago. I'm very interested to see what their results find!

"Yay!" is right! I definitely participated in this and am glad to see you're sharing the information! I was doing some reading on endo today and am so glad to find your blog.

I also wanted to let you know about a survey that I'm conducting online about endometriosis.

You can find more information about the survey and my book at I'd love for you to consider participating.

In good health - Jessica

Ok, so I found u via erika of oops I craftmy pants and I can't wait to read ur entire blog! I also have satge 4 endo and just had my second lap procedure. I am also interested in this study! Thanks for sharing! I have a "craft" blog, but I tend to only write all the infertilty drama on my family blog that is private. But I feel itneccesary to be 100%. Honest and open about it on the family blog but had to make it private due to lame people leaving lame comments. But if u r interested I don't mind sending u an invite.

Thanks again!

Would you consider completing this survey? If, after you are finished, you would like to share it with the women you know, I'd appreciate that too.

Take care!!

In good health,
