Many said that late Steve Irwin’s children had big shoes to fill when they decided to follow into his footsteps, but they are showing the world that they are continuing their father’s legacy in the best way possible. The love they feel for the animals is enormous and their efforts to preserve different species is effortless.
Bindi Irwin and Robert Irwin, together with their mother Terri, work as zoo keepers in Australia and are involved in conservation, promoting, and protecting animals.
Bindi, who is now a mom of daughter Grace Warrior, often shares photos of her little one and updates her fans of important events of her life.
This time, she shared a photo of herself from the hospital and shared with her fans that after years of living in pain, she has finally decided to take care of a condition she suffered from.
Namely, Bindi was diagnosed with endometriosis, a disorder in which cells identical to the lining of the uterus develop outside of the uterus.
The thing is that she spent years trying to figure out what was wrong with her.
“Dear Friends, I battled for a long time wondering if I should share this journey with you in such a public space. It came down to the responsibility I feel to share my story for other women who need help,” she wrote on the social media and explained that doctors’ ignored her symptoms for long.
“A doctor told me it was simply something you deal with as a woman & I gave up entirely, trying to function through the pain. I didn’t find answers until a friend @lesliemosier helped set me on a path of regaining my life. I decided to undergo surgery for endometriosis,” she wrote, adding that the doctors found thirty-seven lesions and an ovarian cyst.
Then, it was a friend of hers who encouraged her to do all in her power to detect the reason behind the pain she experienced for so long. Finally, she was diagnosed and could get the treatment needed.
“Things may look fine on the outside looking in through the window of someone’s life, however, that is not always the case. Please be gentle & pause before asking me (or any woman) when we’ll be having more children,” she wrote.
“After all that my body has gone through, I feel tremendously grateful that we have our gorgeous daughter. She feels like our family’s miracle. I’m aware of millions of women struggling with a similar story. There’s stigma around this awful disease. I’m sharing my story for anyone who reads this & is quietly dealing with pain & no answers. Let this be your validation that your pain is real & you deserve help. Keep searching for answers. www.endofound.org,” she concluded.
We are glad Bindi shared her story with us and we wish her good health.
