Katy Johnston Endometriosis Portrait

Katy Johnston

Age: 23

Time to diagnosis: 6 years

Katy’s a passionate, punchy, caring communicator – a freelance journalist and broadcaster doing a postgraduate course in Multimedia Journalism. She’s exceptionally close to her mum Jane, who’s a rock to her. Together, these effervescent women are committed to raising awareness about endometriosis.

Katy is still in pain and she knows she needs to slow down. She has a long way to go and an operation ahead. But she’s embracing life too with her lovely boyfriend Niall and her hugely supportive and incredible best friend, her mum Jane.

Endometriosis UK helps people with the condition take back control by providing vital support services,

reliable information and a community for those affected by endometriosis.
