LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today marks the launch of http://catamenialpneumothorax.org, the brainchild of Glynis D. Wallace, DMD. Dr. Wallace created the patient and physician education website after receiving worldwide accolades from readers of her book, “Living with Lung and Colon Endometriosis,” September 2005, a tribute to her plight, and her enormous ability to story tell with honesty her maze-like healthcare journey. The book is available in eight countries, and details her phenomenal military-based healthcare journey to win the battle with pulmonary endometriosis.
According to Dr. Wallace, the mission of the website is heartfelt. “My mission is to make every woman in every country, and the physicians who treat them, aware of this disease and treatment options!”
The website advances a global call to action and is the first of its kind to alert the nation and global healthcare community to the prevalence, hardship, and treatment options of this rare disease from a patients’ perspective. Dr. Wallace’s real-life experience is captured using “universal” animated icon and text-based web pages, designed for everyone, regardless of their ability to read, or to read English.
Adds Dr. Wallace, “The website helps educate a global patient and provider community to better understand the prevalence, hardship, and treatment options of this rare disease, and create global understanding among a cross section of medical subspecialties, ultimately leading to quicker, easier, and more widespread global diagnosis, and subsequent treatment regimes.”
The tremendous worldwide interest in Dr. Wallace's book "Living With Lung and Colon Endometriosis: Catamenial Pneumothorax," demonstrated the need for a call to action. Catamenial Pneumothorax.org serves to alert the global health care community to the prevalence, hardship, and treatment options that can make Catamenial Pneumothorax/Lung and Colon Endometriosis, well known and understood among a cross section of medical specialties. The goal of the website and Dr. Wallace’s efforts is to spearhead quicker, easier, and more widespread global diagnosis, and subsequent treatment regimes. http://catamenialpneumothorax.org.
