Endometriosis Foundation of America: An Online Patient Community
Give Those with Endometriosis a Fighting Chance

As a steadfast supporter of the Endometriosis Foundation of America, we hope you know your gifts are life-changing for people fighting this disease. And before 2021 draws to a close, you can double the difference you make because your gift will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 by Northwell Health (until 12/31). Every day our team is reminded of the stress and suffering people with endometriosis face. We hear the stories. Stories of being told “it’s all in your head.” Stories of years of misdiagnosis. Stories of consistent crippling pain. But we also hear stories of hope. Stories of promising research. Stories of new legislation to support federal funding. Stories of people coming together to support one another. And it’s people like you who give all of us hope. Thank you for being there for those with endometriosis today and every day. We do not take it for granted because we know our work would not be possible without you!
