WHAT: The Worldwide EndoMarch is an endometriosis awareness march that takes place each year in dozens of cities around the world. The 2nd Annual Worldwide EndoMarch will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2015 (World Endometriosis Day), during which time healthcare professionals, endometriosis patients, and their loved ones will come together to march for a cure, for better care, and so future generations won’t have to.
WHEN: Saturday, March 28, 2015
WHERE: Worldwide! The march will take place in dozens of cities all over the world. To find a team near you, please just email us at email@example.com.
WHERE, USA: In the USA, the two event locations are Washington, DC and Palo Alto, California. For preliminary event information, please click here. Group travel discounts will be announced soon.
WHO: Drs Camran, Farr , Ceana and Azadeh Nezhat are sponsors of the Worldwide EndoMarch & World Endometriosis Day. The staff members at Worldwide EndoMarch have recruited volunteers from all over the world to help make this happen.
WHY: Endometriosis is a cruel, crippling, and incurable disease that affects an estimated 1 in 8 women and girls. Yet, despite being so common, there is very little in the way of public awareness about the disease. Due to this lack of awareness in both the general public, as well as with medical professionals, it takes on average 6-10 years of unnecessary suffering and countless visits to doctor after doctor before patients receive a correct diagnosis. As a result, women and girls suffer in silence and risk losing their organs, their pregnancies, and their fertility. Women even lose their jobs, friends, and family support as a result of misunderstanding about this serious, yet invisible disease. The only way we will see improvement in these dismal statistics is if we come together as a community and march on the streets so that our voices will be heard..
HOW: We hope you’ll march with us to end endo now! There are many ways you can get involved:
