Running for the Endometriosis Foundation of America

My recovery began the day I found out I had endometriosis!

My name is Safiya Warner and I am running the NYC marathon to raise awareness of endometriosis in the black community. My goal is to raise at least $3,000 to support ongoing research and endometriosis awareness efforts. Will you join me?

My story:
My twin sister and I have suffered with endometriosis (endo) since our first period. We experienced painful periods, nausea, weight loss, and exhaustion every month. Endometriosis took over our lives.

The experience of Endo worsened in my late twenties/early thirties and began controlling my life. I planned everything around it, because I would be in so much pain I could not be outdoors once my cycle began.

Turning point: We found Dr. Nazhet and Dr. Achololnu who conducted our individual surgeries and helped save our lives. We have our lives back and can now live normal lives during our periods. We want the same freedom for other brown girls.

This is why I’m running the 2019 NYC Marathon because I want to help save brown girls like me who do not have the knowledge nor the resources to live beyond Endo. I am racing to raise awareness about endometriosis to save lives.

Would you consider giving at least $50 to $100? Your donation will help me spread the word and help me raise the $3,000 for research and awareness.

Thank you.
