In response to the unique and crippling effect of COVID-19 on the nearly 200 million women worldwide with endometriosis, the Endometriosis Foundation of America has jumped into action to provide free resources and information to endometriosis patients and their loved ones. With surgeries being postponed, emergency rooms clogged, and patients suffering with pain and isolation, EndoFound is there for the community.
EndoFound has created a virtual resource hub with all the information patients need to know about living with endo during the novel coronavirus outbreak. We are also hosting free-of-charge webinars for the community and beyond.
But we need your support.
As a result of COVID-19, EndoFound had to cancel all of its fundraising events, including the Annual Gala. To make up the shortfall, we need your support now.
With your support, we can continue to be a resource for endometriosis patients and their loved ones. Your support will help us to continue to advocate for endometriosis patients.
Thanks to your previous support, in the fall of 2019, New York became the first state to include menstrual disorders and endometriosis in the health curriculum for middle and high school students. Now we need funding to help implement that curriculum, and help pass the same legislation in the other 49 states.
With many school districts closed for the rest of the school year, we need to develop and implement new ways to teach our ENPOWR education program to high school students. We need funds to develop new online programs.
And we need funding to continue to support researchers developing new diagnostics and treatments for endo patients.
Please help so that EndoFound can continue building awareness of the disease, advocating for the community, educating adolescents, and supporting cutting-edge research. Your support is needed now more than ever.
