While the Endo Challenge has always positioned itself as a neutral tool for all endometriosis advocates to utilize, we realize that some people may be coming to our site looking for help in coping with the disease. This realization has prompted us to create a page that lists a variety of support groups and educational resources to further educate yourself and receive the support you need. If you have a support group that you would like added, submit a message via our contact page for review and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
