Donate to EFHou today!
Your gift will help the Endometriosis Foundation of Houston provide the needed support, education, and advocacy programs to individuals affected by endometriosis in the Greater Houston area.
Why support EFHou?
EFHou believes that every person who suffers from endometriosis deserves proper and effective treatment and care. By supporting EFHou, you empower our community to:
RETHINK ENDO. Endometriosis is plagued by stigma, myths, and misinformation. Patients are often left feeling silenced, invalidated, and hopeless. When you support EFHou, you can trust that the community is learning factual information about the disease in a supportive environment. This is crucial to giving patients a voice and helping them pursue the best options for their care.
BREAK THE CYCLE. A disease that’s been described as more painful than childbirth, that’s one of the leading causes of gynecologic hospitalization, and is nearly as prevalent as diabetes in women shouldn’t be a mystery to the medical community and shouldn’t take up to 10 years or longer to diagnose.
BE THE CHANGE. Patients should not face surgery after surgery or treatment failure after failure. By supporting us, you are an ally in the fight for better care for your fellow Houstonians. You are declaring your support for the 200 Million people worldwide suffering from endometriosis. By helping us promote expert care, you are giving an individual the chance to complete their studies, pursue a fulfilling career, or even have a family. You are giving them a chance to get their life back.
Where do your donations go to?
With your generous support, we can provide the following:
Host in-person and virtual educational and social community events
Attend conferences and workshops regarding endometriosis education and policies
Expand our outreach efforts to marginalized, underrepresented and underinsured communities
Create and distribute educational pamphlets and flyers to providers and patients
Curate educational books about endometriosis
Healing Hou: Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Scholarship, our pilot program, to help provide financial assistance for pelvic floor physical therapy sessions to Houstonians who are diagnosed with endometriosis.
As we grow, we intend to expand other programs to serve the Greater Houston community.
