John Blondin & MENDO - Although endometriosis is a female disease, it affects our male counterparts who love and support women in this constant battle. Realizing that there was little support out there for men like himself, John Blondin decided to implement a program, MENDO for Men who Love Women with Endometriosis. MENDO was transitioned to the ERC auspices in 2011. We are extremely grateful to John Blondin and Carey Lewis for their implementation, support and maintenance of the first program in the entire world to support male partners, and we will do our best to carry out the vision of its founders and look forward to continuing to serve the needs of its community members.
