Testimonials from prior years:
"The Alliance for Pelvic Pain retreat was a life-changing experience. It was wonderful to meet so many other women w/ similar symptoms. I felt incredibly supported & understood."
- 2013 Retreat Participant
"The event was beyond my expectations. I am in my upper twenties and connected to people in all age ranges. I received guidance from older people who also told me how much they respected me for having this challenge at such a young age." - 2013 Retreat Participant
"I left the conference feeling much more of that sense of integration, and with a sense of connectedness to everyone else there. I have much more I could say about this, but I just wanted to say how deeply meaningful the whole experience was for me and how grateful I am for you to have provided it." - 2013 Retreat Participant
