Padma Lakshimi EmmyRaise Awareness Now & Win:
Endometriosis Foundation of America "Take Back the Day" Essay-Writing Contest

In April, I described the Endometriosis Foundation of America's recently established, public "Share Your Story" thanks to your willingness to share your endometriosis stories in the hope that all of us who have the disease may be helped, this archive is growing! Now, Dr. Seckin has informed me about another, similar endometriosis-awareness initiative -- an essay contest actually. But don't delay in entering this contest because all essays must be entered very soon, by the deadline date, this Friday, May 7 . . .

Read all about the "Take Back the Day" Essay-Writing Contest on the EFA Facebook Page

So, how would you take back 1 day that you lost due to endometriosis suffering? What would you do instead?

Enter this writing contest today and let your voice be heard.

You could win: The "Take Back the Day." Essay-winner will get a chance to go to part of the Endometriosis Foundation of America Blossom Ball this May 20 in New York City and meet cofounder Padma Lakshmi, actress, author, Emmy-nominated Top Chef host and icon of endometriosis awareness and advocacy.
But also, by entering the "Take Back the Day" Essay Contest, you could help raise awareness about endometriosis and then we all win.

Increased awareness about this painful, debilitating disease that strikes about 10 million United States women and adolescent girls (176 million worldwide) is critical. The earlier endometriosis is treated (ideally with surgery that removes allthe disease), the better, Dr. Seckin says. But awareness about the health condition comes first. Endometriosis lives in silence, yet may be eradicated if we keep putting a face on it.

    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!

  • Sheena Wright

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.

My case was very aggressive and involved my urinary tract system and my intestines. After exhausting all of my local doctors I was lucky enough to find Dr. Seckin. We…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • Kristin Sands

    Like so many women who have tirelessly sought a correct diagnosis and proper, thorough medical treatment for endometriosis, I found myself 26 years into this unwanted journey without clear answers or help from four previous gynecological doctors and two emergency laparoscopic surgeries. I desperately wanted to avoid the ER again; a CT scan for appendicitis also revealed a likely endometrioma…
