HAVING suffered a challenging health journey, army spouse Elizabeth Amoaa set up Speciallady Awareness – a foundation to support women suffering from reproductive issues. Army&You spoke to Elizabeth to find out more…
After more than two decades of enduring extreme pain, endless medical appointments and a silent miscarriage, Elizabeth was eventually diagnosed with uterus didelphys, severe endometriosis, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids.
Elizabeth’s bid to give a “voice to the voiceless” frequently sees her travel to Ghana, her country of birth.
“I’m willing to go anywhere around the world, as many women and girls suffer in silence or don’t seek adequate medical care due to stereotyping, labelling or a lack of medical support.”
Elizabeth – who also juggles a part-time job – has found no shortage of support for herself within the army community; with other spouses offering counsel and medical staff in the UK and Germany providing the care required.
“My plan is to be the voice of the voiceless globally,” she added. “Many women and young girls are still not comfortable to talk about these issues. I believe these unspoken topics must be discussed.”
