Dear %Subscriber:CustomField1%,

This week on #GivingTuesday, EndoFound launched its 200 for 200 fundraising campaign, supporting the 200 million individuals worldwide who have endometriosis. Thank you to those who've already started fundraising and sharing your stories. Thank you to those who have already donated. The campaign will run through the month, so you have plenty of time to start your own fundraiser, donate, and spread the word!

Together, now more than ever, we are poised to make even more significant strides in endometriosis research and outreach. Your efforts led New York State to pass the first menstrual health law that includes endometriosis education. Your voices echoed through the chambers of Capitol Hill, leading to the creation of the first House Endometriosis Caucus. Your clarion call for answers led researchers from major research institutions worldwide to prioritize understanding this disease and how it progresses, setting the stage for future breakthroughs.

A gift of any amount continues these efforts ensuring that the world understands endometriosis and prioritizes treating and defeating this disease. It's not too late—click here to join the movement and look below for an urgent call to action for endometriosis funding. Together we are making an impact! 

In community,

Urgent Call to Action! Tell Congress NOT to Cut Endometriosis Funding

A few months ago, historic legislation was passed in the house to double endometriosis funding. Now, we have to get the same bill passed in senate. Please join us in contacting the offices of Senators Elizabeth Warren and Mitt Romney for two urgent requests. First, to persuade them to look into the oversight for including endometriosis as an eligible condition in the Department of Defense (DOD) Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP). Endometriosis was included in both 2018 and 2020. Second, we request they approve the highest possible funding level for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) in the final FY 2021 appropriations legislation to ensure that resources are available to double funding for endometriosis research from the FY 2019 level and increase funding for endometriosis to $26 million. Join us by signing the petition today!

On the Horizon: A Noninvasive Endo Test

A few months ago, we met with the inspiring undergraduate students of the UteRus iGEM team at the University of Rochester, and since then, they’ve made remarkable progress on their work to create a noninvasive endometriosis test. This test could potentially replace surgery as the sole diagnostic method for endometriosis, making a diagnosis more accessible to individuals.
