World Endometriosis Research Foundation (WERF)

WERF is the global charity fostering research in endometriosis to improve knowledge and treatments. We carry out well powered international multi-centre studies and support research projects investigating disease mechanisms. WERF's vision is to prevent endometriosis in the next generation of women!

Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. 

I ran the London Marathon on 26 April 2009 (in 5 hours and 22 minutes) to raise money for much needed research in endometriosis to improve treatments for the millions of women around the world who, like me, suffer from endometriosis.

I chose the World Endometriosis Research Foundation (WERF) as my charity because I believe that the only way we will improve treatments for endometriosis, and one day find a cure, is through coordinating research – not just in the EU, but across the globe. 

An estimated 100 million women in the world have endometriosis - during the prime of their lives!  Yet there is no cure, and little funding to find one.  This is a scandal!

Only through international collaboration will we see results benefiting all of us with this disease. If I reach my target of £20,000, WERF will be able to kick-start more basic research to increase knowledge and improve treatments.

Please give generously.

Thank you!
