A MESSAGE FROM Elise

I am so excited to run the NYC Marathon with Team EndoStrong! I first-hand know the physical and emotional toll endometriosis can cause -- I was diagnosed at 21 after years of dealing with incapacitating pain that completely affected my quality of life. This invisible disease deserves so much more awareness and funding to make a difference for those, like myself, who are impacted by endometriosis. If you are able, please consider donating to this meaningful cause - anything helps!

 

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the inner lining of the uterus, also known as the endometrium, is found outside its normal location, where the tissue should not be. This may result in inflammation, as the tissue even outside the uterus will respond to the monthly fluctuations of the menstrual cycle.


The disease affects 1 in 10 reproductive-aged individuals (aged 12-52) - an estimated 200 million women worldwide - and many often experience a decade-long delay in diagnosis. Currently, there is no known exact cause of endometriosis, and there is no cure. 

 

The Endometriosis Foundation of America strives to increase disease recognition, provide advocacy, facilitate expert surgical training, and fund landmark endometriosis research. Engaged in a robust campaign to inform both the medical community and the public, the EndoFound places particular emphasis on the critical importance of early diagnosis and effective intervention while simultaneously providing education to the next generation of medical professionals and their patients.
