The He too anti-sexual assault movement was founded by Dianna Hobbs. It empowers sexual assault survivors of faith and color to not only use their voices to share their stories, but also, to see how Christ’s story and His redemptive work on the cross has power to heal their pain. It shows women that they don't have to be bound by what was done to them; they are free because of what Christ has done for them.
Hobbs also launched the "No More Secrets" sexual assault awareness campaign in 2015. Women shared their stories and helped EEW increase awareness and break down the great wall of silence.

Dianna Hobbs, Founder of EEW, Inc. was diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases in 2017: Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. It took months for doctors to learn what was causing chronic joint and nerve pain, bruising, inability to walk and eat, migraine headaches, nausea, swollen lymph nodes, low white blood cell count, bowel issues, heart and breathing trouble, and dangerously high blood pressure spikes.
But after multiple trips to the Emergency Room, hospitalizations, lots of prayer and tears, by the grace of God, Dianna received a diagnosis within four months andwas able to begin getting treatment from top specialists in her region. Then God stepped in and healed her totally! But her story isn't like most people's.
The wait for diagnosis and treatment for the average individual is much longer. It takes, on
average, 5-10 years for an Autoimmune disease to be discovered.
Some die without ever knowing what is wrong.
Many don’t have what it takes to pursue aggressive and extensive testing over a long period, which can cost major dollars and lead to dead ends if medical professionals are not persistent.
Before Dianna was diagnosed, we weren’t aware of these facts about incurable Autoimmune diseases were:
> Among the Top 10 leading causes of death
> The #2 cause of chronic pain
> 50 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed
> Only 3 percent of the federal budget goes toward researching the over 100 Autoimmune diseases
> They are just as big a threat as cancer and heart disease

We also didn’t know how many of the amazing women God touches through EEW are actually battling these horrible diseases.
Some of them are being treated, while others don’t know what’s wrong and don’t see any end to their suffering from Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes and more.
But now we know and by reading this, you know too. So let's do something about it together.
Dianna says, “Though the health battle I went through and the process of finding treatment was not enjoyable for me by any means, what does give me joy is my ability to now use my platform and voice to help others through advocacy.”
She continues, “I realize this health battle, which came with many days and nights of crying from the pain, is not about me. It is, instead, an opportunity to fight for millions of others, to speak up, to create more awareness, and to petition our federal government to do more to fund research to eradicate these terrible diseases.”
