Endometriosis Foundation of America: ‚ÄčAn Online Patient Community
Conquering Endometriosis Becomes a Family Affair
TCS NY Marathon Team EndoStrong

By William Croyle

The Grobmans knew nothing about endometriosis until five years ago. Now, they are immersed in EndoFound by bringing awareness to the disease and raising money for a cure.

Rachel Grobman, a patient of Dr. Tamer Seckin, has worked in EndoFound’s social media department for nearly four years. Her mother, Jody, serves on the board. Her father, Ricky, is the president of Key Food Stores Co-Operative, which has donated tens of thousands of dollars and pallets of feminine hygiene products toward EndoFound’s mission. And Rachel’s two brothers and other relatives attended the Blossom Ball in 2019 to learn more about her battle.

The Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound) received a $100,000 donation from Procter and Gamble (P&G) brand Tampax® to expand EndoFound's education programs. These programs include the ENPOWR™ (Endometriosis: Promoting Outreach and Wide Recognition) Project, a school and community-based endometriosis education program, and EndoTV, EndoFound's digital network.

"Thank you to Tampax® for this incredible support of EndoFound's educational program, ENPOWR™. Thank you also to Amy Schumer for reaching out to Tampax® and introducing them to the EndoFound programs. No longer should talk about a woman's period be taboo. Young women, and girls, in particular, need to know that painful periods are not normal and that there is help. Everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive, and those living with endometriosis are no exception. We need to make talking about periods as regular as periods themselves. Then, and only then, can we eliminate societal stigma and build a culture that empowers women," said EndoFound Founder Tamer Seckin, MD.
