Mission Statement

The Endometriosis Research Center is an international 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness about Endometriosis, educating the medical and lay societies about the disease, and providing support to the women and teens who live with this debilitating disorder. Endometriosis affects over 7 million women in the US alone (more women than breast cancer) and can cause severe pain, infertility, depression and more in patients with the disease. Endometriosis can impair a woman's ability to work, care for herself and her family, and is currently incurable.


The ERC is dedicated to raising awareness, educating society and facilitating the search for a cure in many ways. Through relationships within the scientific community and with world opinion leaders on the disease, the ERC participates in and strives to promote further evidence-based research studies for better treatment options and ultimately a cure for Endometriosis. Interested parties are able to obtain resources, newsletters, educational materials and support from the ERC at little or no cost, and there is never a fee to become a member of the organization. Working with widespread media contacts, the ERC helps to raise awareness about Endometriosis and lobbies to raise necessary funds to perform further studies on the disease. We offer online and local support to women with Endometriosis and their families free of charge, and act as a clearinghouse for current issues on Endometriosis. The ERC's ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for women with this insidious disease.

ERC is a solid organization. They have been the beneficiary of my fundraising efforts for the past two years(Bowties and Pearls: A Bourbon Cocktail Party) and for my 5k in 2010 (No Time for Pain 5k). I highly recommend ERC for endometriosis fundraising efforts. They are about recreating relationships with those in the community who are sincerely interested in created awareness for this disease.
