ABOUT PAO BUDDIES

Having to go through something so hard on your own can be challenging. Even with friends and family, only those that have been through it can understand you. Although this surgery impacts people physically, the mental part of it is another battle. Our hope is to allow others to connect with each other. Whether it is becoming a mentor, finding a surgery date buddy, or just wanting a fellow PAO friend to talk to, that is your choice. Not everyone has Facebook or Instagram to be able to find people like us to talk to about things only each other can understand. That is why we are here.

Goal: By helping people connect with others who have gone through a PAO or are feeling the same emotions as you, it will help a lot of people feel more mentally understood.

HOW
THE IDEA
started

When I went through this, I met someone over social media who impacted my life greatly and got me through it. I wish to impact more people's lives by finding them a buddy like I had.
