Powerful, Emotive, & Exemplary: Did You Miss the UpEndo Congressional Briefing?

Tuesday’s Congressional briefing was powerful, emotive, and an exemplary call to action for the public and congress to “UpEndo” by increasing research funds and awareness for the debilitating disease that continues to affect so many people. The leading voices on endometriosis awareness shared their powerful, personal journeys, as well as opportunities to make a difference in endometriosis advocacy on Capitol Hill. Thank you to our participants, who have been hard at work fighting for a better quality of life for endometriosis patients everywhere. We have so much work to do—start by listening to these inspiring change makers and use your voices to make a difference!

Thank You For Fighting for People with Endo!

Sometimes there’s no better way to say something than to say it simply, so on behalf of people with endometriosis... thank you! This year, Giving Tuesday gifts to EndoFound totaled more than $15,000.00 And this amount was matched by Northwell Health, meaning your impact was doubled! We are beyond grateful. We know our work would not be possible without supporters like you. This December, we’ll be sharing the stories of people who fight endometriosis daily. While these stories may hit too close to home for some, I hope you also will be inspired by the resilience and strength which you, through your support, help make possible.

I wish that I had grown up in an era in which normalizing your body and all that it can experience was the norm. It is why I feel compelled to write this now.”
