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

    I’ve seen many obgyns over the years explaining my monthly symptoms during my period...but eventually it became a daily struggle with these pain. It feels like a poke here and there near my right pelvic region. I was given birth control pills for the past ten years but honestly, it didn’t help at all. I was in bed whenever I…

    Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable. I remember when my gynecologist first told me I needed a laparoscopy. Her exact words were "I can do the surgery, but if you were MY daughter- I'd send you to…

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!
