Arielle (Diagnosed at age 15)

"I can't say thank you enough. My mother, aunts and girlfriend were all moved by the work on Sunday. I couldn't have articulated the pain and anguish of endometriosis any better. All the stories danced and spoken were amazingly on point. Seeing my story danced and spoken was overwhelming. Please tell the two young women that they captured me beautifully. My godmother, a dance teacher, said that the dance was perfect and looked like something I would choreograph or dance myself. The actress portrayed my feelings perfectly. It was almost scary how well you summed me up. Thank you, Cathy. I pray  to see this piece again many times and would love to have a DVD or recording of it some day. Thank you. Thank You! Thank you!!"

Shannon (Diagnosed at age 33 as a result of Female Trouble)

"Ms. Cathy Quigley and I have known each other ten plus years, and she was always the "Go-To" among girlfriends when anything was of a female nature. About 6 years ago, I confided in her that I was in pain quite often, during my period, during PMS, during intercourse - mostly it seemed like during everything "female related". I went to a doctor for a few years and expressed my concern to her, she basically brushed it aside with pain medications, multiple birth control prescriptions, and an IUD.

During this time, Ms. Quigley was in pre-production for Female Trouble and encouraged me to seek counseling regarding endometriosis. She kept saying, 'The symptoms are exact...ask them for help...' which I did multiple times to no avail.

Ms. Quigley was persistent and during her research asked around and found another doctor for me who was an expert in endometriosis. I went, he pre-diagnosed me with endometriosis,  I had surgery a month later and was formally diagnosed with endometriosis.

Two months later, my (very supportive!) boyfriend and I went to see Female Trouble, it moved us to tears. The struggles I had to go through came to life on the stage.  I know this will open up many doors to other misdiagnosed women--everyone needs to be educated! I owe my sanity and my uterus to Ms. Cathy Quigley."
