Kylie Brown


Kylie Brown has lived 27 years with the debilitating, painful and frustrating symptoms of endometriosis. She has endured 10 surgeries, including an ectopic pregnancy and hysterectomy at age 33.

Despite this, Kylie sees herself as one of the lucky ones. She has been blessed with 3 crazy kids and she has a body that is fighting a battle but still allows her to do so many things in life that she is forever grateful for. She knows there is so much more to come.

In 2020, Kylie had her 9th laparoscopy and Endo Runner was born. During the 9 months post surgery she trained and ran a full marathon, 42.2km, raising $17,202.70 for Endometriosis Australia. The training alone was challenging, much like a day in the life of an endometriosis suffer.

“I ran for the girls who have been sent away from hospital with a packet of pain killers and told it’s a bad period or not even given any pain relief as they are seen to be drug addicts and the pain is all in their head, the couples going through IVF because all they want is to start a family and the women who just want to live life without pain. Endometriosis is brutal and we need a cure for future generations so they don’t have to go through all of the above.”
