THE STORY:

My name is Lorraine Knoblauch and I am running the 2017 NYC marathon for the purpose of raising funds for the Endometriosis Foundation Of America. I am running every mile for my daughter Jenna who suffers from this dibilating disease. I am dedicating every day of training and every ounce of effort to honor my girl and show her that even though she qualified to run this marathon and will hold her spot till next year, that we are in this together and fighting the good fight.


About Endometriosis....

Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) is found outside the uterus on other parts of the body. It affects girls and women during their most productive years, and can impact all aspects of their lives – school, careers, finances, relationships, and overall well being. Generally, endometriosis is found in the pelvic cavity. It can attach to any of the female reproductive organs (uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries), the uterosacral ligaments, the peritoneum, or any of the spaces between the bladder, uterus/vagina, and rectum.  Endometriosis can also be found, though less commonly, on the bladder,bowel, intestines, appendix or rectum. Many aspects of endometriosis are misunderstood and require further research.  Specifically, it is critical to define the different types of endometriosis and to understand their cause to carryout appropriate treatment.


About the Endometriosis Foundation of America....

The Endometriosis Foundation of America strives to increase disease recognition, provide advocacy, facilitate expert surgical training, and fund landmark endometriosis research. Engaged in a robust campaign to inform both the medical community and the public, the EFA places particular emphasis on the critical importance of early diagnosis and effective intervention while simultaneously providing education to the next generation of medical professionals and their patients. 


The EFA is co-founded by Dr. Tamer Seckin, who is Jenna's Endometriosis specialist. Dr. Seckin is one of America's Top Surgeons & Gynecologists, and among a very limited number of accredited gynecologic surgeons in the United States who possess advanced training for the deep laparoscopic excision of endometriosis. Over the course of more than two decades of treating thousands of women and girls, the majority of his patients have experienced long-term relief as well as no recurrence of the disease. Dr. Seckin is a philanthropist and educator, and dedicates much of his time to speaking out and educating others about endometriosis. He strives to promote public awareness and knowledge about the disease as well as early diagnosis and effective intervention.


Please consider donating to the cause that is so close to my heart. Together we can make a difference!


Thank You!
