A MESSAGE FROM Rebekah
More than 200 million people around the world have endometriosis, and I am one of them. I was diagnosed with Stage IV endometriosis in 2013 and have spent the past 9 years learning to manage and heal this chronic condition. I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing practitioners who have supported me on this journey, and that's why I'm running the 2022 NYC Marathon to fundraise for the Endometriosis Foundation of America. We have a looooong way to go in understanding and treating endometriosis, and I want to support Endo Found's efforts to people with endometriosis like me. Many of us suffer from debilitating pain that leads to learning loss from missed school days, earning gaps from missed work, depression and other mental health issues associated with chronic illness, and the crushing emotional pain of infertility. Please join me in fighting endometriosis by making a tax-deductible contribution to my marathon fundraising campaign. Thank you for your support!
