The year-round Calgary Corporate Challenge included a unique event this spring, with employees gathering at Olympic Plaza for a “human bonspiel.”
Every corporate team taking part in the March 1 to 4 event had to qualify to vie for a spot in the finals.
Brandi Laperle was a teenager living in Edmonton when her symptoms first arose. Severe cramping that would have her doubled over in pain, heavy menstrual flow, digestive issues, bladder pain, and swollen gums. It wasn’t until she was 31-years-old that she was finally diagnosed with endometriosis.
After years of trying different treatments like IUDs, birth control and pain medication, Laperle was given Leuproreli, more commonly referred to by its tradename, Lupron, and after one injection went into menopause overnight. A phenomenon known as chemical castration.
