Blossom Ball 2012

Blossom Ball 2012

Dear Friends,

As a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, tax-deductible organization, The Endometriosis Foundation of America, EFA’s cornerstone efforts seek to increase disease recognition, provide advocacy, facilitate expert surgical training, and fund landmark research.

The disease costs society a staggering excess of $70 billion annually.  It affects women in the prime years of their lives, with the potential to derail careers, academic endeavors, fertility choices and every aspect of a life.  Through your support, we will find a solution to help.

Our awareness campaigns have generated over 320 million media impressions through our public relations efforts to encourage women to seek appropriate treatment.   Important personalities and media outlets supportive of our mission have included Susan Sarandon, Dr. Oz, Fareed Zakaria, Whoopi Goldberg, the Today Show, Nightline, Glamour Magazine, the New York Post and The Wall Street Journal.  Other significant impact has been made in increasing awareness in government, hospitals, medical offices, and schools through activities including our original design and national dissemination of the country’s first “Do you have Endometriosis?” poster.  This March, our third annual scientific symposium, “Advancing Science and Surgery for Endometriosis: Tapping the Roots for the Next Generation”, will highlight groundbreaking research on the disease.

Our Blossom Ball is March 15, 2012 at the New York Public Library, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.  This fundraising gala is held during Endometriosis Awareness Month to support the Foundation’s initiatives. Please click here for all ticket and table options.

Thank you for your continued support.  We look forward to seeing you at the Blossom Ball.

Sincerely,

   
       Ms. Padma Lakshmi

    Prior to meeting Dr. Seckin and reading his book, “The Doctor Will See You Now”, I knew little to nothing about endometriosis. I was led to believe that endometriosis was not a serious condition. I was told that the pain could be managed by taking the “pill”. I was told that the cysts on my ovaries were harmless. I was…

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%. During this time, I was preparing all my documents to send to Dr. Seckin to review. However, with this new information I put everything on hold and went to a urologist. After a few months, no one could figure…

    I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Seckin and his team before, during and after my surgery. I came to Dr. Seckin having already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis 5 years prior, with a different surgeon. My symptoms and pain had returned, making my life truly challenging and my menstrual cycle unbearable. Dr. Seckin was quick to validate my…

    I came to Dr. Seckin after years of dealing with endometriosis and doctors who didn't fully understand the disease. He quickly ascertained what needed to be done, laid out the options along with his recommendation and gave me the time to make the right decision for me. My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…
