PRAISE FOR "IT'S TIME."

- "Poetically and hauntingly written. Every word resonated with me; every painful situation struck me by the way it was honestly portrayed."

- "A great analysis of all the feelings and emotions and pain that go with endometriosis."

- "I read it in one stroke, unable to stop. I already knew you were an excellent writer, but I am still impressed by this work. It was very special. You expressed yourself in such a way that it is so relatable, even to people (like me) who do not suffer from endometriosis but have had or have issues with reproduction and fertility. So I want to thank you for this."

- "You did an amazing job and your organization Alba is going to do great things and help so many people who suffer from endometriosis, as well as their loved ones! I love the Feelings chapter! When I was first diagnosed, it was hard for me to put into words how I was feeling. You explain all of the feelings so well and in a way that resonated with me."

- "I couldn't help but to read it straight through last night. Congrats on this work and thanks for sharing it with the world! I experienced myself that there is a lot of beauty in sharing such things. While its beyond terrifying to expose one's own weaknesses, it alleviates the pressure of always having to hide the issue and pretend to be doing fine. Sharing also helps others who feel lost or overwhelmed in similar situations, and its good to know to be in it together. I would say that most of the book is actually very universal and also works beyond endometriosis. I've been struggling with anxiety and depression myself in the last two years (and then frustration and anger as a consequence) and I could immediately relate to most of what you described."

- "I was very touched by your experience (you're a great writer) and I was surprised to learn how painful endometriosis can be."

- "About courage, determination, energy and optimism, and how misery can turn into the positive."

- "Read it all in one sitting. It is powerful and it is hard for me to put in in words how it made me feel. Sad, angry, inspired, relatable, being proud of you, rooting for you. I have so much respect for you!! Thank you for sharing your story! Now when I carry my Alba tote bag, I carry this story with me as well....and it will give me courage!!"

- "What a story! If I wouldn't have known that every word was true, my first reaction would have been: unbelievable. Unbelievable that it takes so much time and so much effort and frustration and pain to get recognition for endometriosis."

- "It struck me how pervasive this disease is; I was stunned by how it affects every part of the author's life, from her waking until sleep and all the activities in between that we take for granted but that are so difficult when she is overcome and debilitated by pain."

- "Your fortitude, determination and wisdom in handling it all leaves me in awe. I pray that this written work reaches the masses who are experiencing these challenges, as I am sure it would be of great benefit to them."

- "This story is one of courage and perseverance, battles and victories. Bravo!"

- "I was really touched by it. So beautifully written. Thank you, vielen Dank."

- "The author is a powerful writer."
------------------------

"It's Time." is an original book written by Kristina Kasparian, a Canadian writer, photographer and scientist. This is a raw, candid, descriptive account of Kristina's personal journey with endometriosis - a journey that will surely resonate with many women and men around the world.

Whether you have been directly touched by the challenges of endometriosis and related health conditions (such as chronic pain, female cancers and infertility) or whether you are curious to learn more about this misunderstood and complex illness from the outside in, the poignant and brutally honest passages in "It's Time"
are intended to educate, empower, inspire and heal.

The book is part of a larger online initiative on women's health called "Alba - a new dawn". This website will showcase – through photographs, words and products designed for the cause – women entrepreneurs who have been affected by endometriosis, female cancers, chronic pain and infertility. Kristina's goal with Alba is to help us shift the dialogue on women’s health and achieve a brighter dawn with more pro-active, holistic, systematic approaches for all, as well as to raise funding for research.

All proceeds from the book will go to starting up and maintaining the Alba project (www.alba-a-new-dawn.com), which in turn will collect funds for research on female cancers and endometriosis.

This whimsical photo of hot air ballons at sunset was exactly what I was looking for to complete our gallery wall! Kristina was more than happy to cater to a unique, albeit, pesky Ikea frame size! Thanks for all of your patience in dealing with our "special" order, Kristina! A+ for amazing photography and fantastic service!!

Loved this photo as it reminded me of a vacation I took recently. Kristina was so kind to help me find a perfect photo to go along with this first choice. So many beautiful photos to select from. Would definitely buy more from this shop if I had more wall space!

I love everything about this item and the entire purchasing process! Kristina is so friendly, passionate and professional with her work and it truly transpires in the final product: a high quality, personalized, work of art with a story behind it. Thank you so much, Kristina for assisting me throughout. I can’t stop gazing at my beautiful Italian Bialetti photo. And to think that it’s one of a kind and captured by a fellow Italophile.... it’s just perfect. I wanted to include a photo of it but it wouldn’t do justice to it or to how nice it looks. I’m not a photographer after all! To anybody who has reservations, hesitations, questions... just reach out to Kristina and she will answer you promptly and with pleasure. The package arrived neatly and carefully packed, with a handwritten, personalized thank you note! Sweet!
