Annual Appeal 2018

Amanda underwent multiple surgeries after receiving her endometriosis diagnosis at age 24. Complications from one of those surgeries were so severe, doctors had to put her in a medically-induced coma. Despite their help, Amanda lost her valiant fight to keep her organs and underwent a partial hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy to remove both of her ovaries as a last ditch effort to end her endometriosis nightmare.

We can do so much more for women like Amanda … 
with YOUR help


Dear Friends,

There are millions of more stories like Amanda’s. An estimated one in ten women in the United States - and 200 million women around the world - live with the physical and emotional pain of endometriosis – the third leading cause of female infertility. Endometriosis is nothing short of a public health crisis!

Over the past nine years, with support from donors, Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) has responded to that crisis by raising public awareness of the disease, advocating for patients’ rights, and funding research and education programs that inform the medical community and improve the lives of women everywhere living with endometriosis. But that was just the beginning! We are so grateful for your support of our mission - please consider making a small financial contribution to support our work together!

In anticipation of EndoFound’s tenth year, co-founder Tamer A. Seckin, MD commissioned Endometriosis 2.0, an organization-wide effort to position EndoFound at the forefront of endometriosis awareness, advocacy, research, and education initiatives for the next generation. Your donation to this year’s annual appeal will also enable future program enhancements to better serve our mission and the millions of women around the world we serve. We are eager to take up this challenge, but we need  YOUR help!

Please, won’t YOU pledge your financial support? With your help, we can keep national attention focused on endometriosis, advocate for those afflicted, fund more research and expand educational outreach to help more women like Amanda!
