Endometriosis Foundation of America: ‚ÄčAn Online Patient Community

Margaret Cianci

Dear %Subscriber:CustomField1%,

Thank you to every person who made the last year more strengthening and supportive for individuals with endometriosis. We have been through an extremely challenging year, and after what this country experienced yesterday, it is all the more clear to me that we have to continue working together as a community. We have to break down walls, we have to talk and have difficult conversations, and we have to embrace one another in our shared mission to improve the lives of endometriosis patients. 

The incredible news about federal endometriosis funding gives me hope. It also means we have a lot of work to do to make sure that cutting-edge research can help improve the lives of endometriosis patients and hopefully, bring us closer to a cure. 

As the year starts up again, I’m excited to share a much-needed guide to supporting your employee with endometriosis. Share with your coworkers and managers. It is past time for the workplace to support all of their employees, especially those with chronic illnesses, with consideration and care. 

We have a landmark law to celebrate and so much work to do for the endometriosis community. 

In community,
Margaret Caspler Cianci
Executive Director, EndoFound

A Guide to Supporting Your Employee with Endometriosis

This year, you deserve employers who can support you as you manage endometriosis.

Complete for Dos & Dont’s in the workplace, this guide can help you advocate for yourself in the new year. Special thanks to Kylie Gomez, author and chronic illness advocate, for sharing her perspective.

We Did It! Funding Doubled for 2021

Just a few weeks ago, the Senate approved doubling funding for endometriosis research from the FY 2019 level to $26 million in the final FY 2021 appropriations. And, endo research is again included in the Department of Defense Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program (DOD). Thank you, Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer, for creating the House Endometriosis Caucus and advocating for increased endometriosis research funding. Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and reached out to your senators. Your voice matters and does make an impact! Together we did it!

Thank You to Our Fundraisers!

Thank you to the 350+ individuals who fundraised for our 200 for 200 million with endometriosis campaign. As one fundraiser shared, “As I talk with more women about it, I realized there are a lot of people silently suffering from this. I hope one day there will be a way to help those impacted by this disease.” With your help, we can start the new year on the right foot—funding cutting edge research, expanding our education program, and supporting the 200 million individuals with endometriosis.
