Ailsa Irving: Founder of the National Endometriosis Society

Everyone at Endometriosis UK is saddened by the news of the passing of Ailsa Irving, founder of the National Endometriosis Society, now Endometriosis UK.⁠

Ailsa's passion and determination to bring together those who suffered with endometriosis, and determination to break the silence for those living with the disease, has paved the way for others to also be more open and seek the support they deserve. ⁠

On behalf of everyone at Endometriosis UK, we are incredibly grateful for Ailsa's hard work, determination, and passion for driving change and supporting those with endometriosis.

⁠We send our deepest condolences to Ailsa’s family at this difficult time.⁠
