Led by Founder Tamer
Seckin, M.D. the 9th Annual Blossom Ball to
benefit the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EndoFound)
was held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City on
Monday, March 19th, 2018. The special event was
co-chaired by Subrata De and Sandra Gelbard, M.D. with
highlighted honorees Grammy-nominated singer Halsey and Lone
Hummelshøj. The Blossom Ball included a performance by the Resistance
Revival Chorus, who recently took the stage with Kesha at
this year's Grammy Awards.
Occurring during Endometriosis
Awareness Month, the Blossom Ball fundraiser dinner was a
cocktail reception, seated dinner and auction, with
entertainment and dancing. Guests had the opportunity to make
donations through text messages.
EndoFound endeavors to
aid and empower endo women across the nation, with a
multi-tiered approach from educating schoolteachers, to funding
endometriosis research and facilitating expert surgical
training. And EndoFound is not alone in the fighting for their
health and well-being. Organizations across sectors including
academia, non-profit and for-profit industries continue to pool
resources—and EndoFound was thrilled to be part of this!
As the #metoo and
Time’s Up movement ushers in an era of female empowerment, a new
generation of women are finding the strength to step forward and
stand in their truth by revealing their endo diagnosis and
letting their fellow endo sisters—an estimated 178 million and
counting—know that they are definitely not alone.
