VOLUNTEERS & SUPPORTERS
ARE THE BEST!
HEROES RUSH IN WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD
We’d like to take a moment to express our immense gratitude to and admiration of the Team USA & Team International Chapter Presidents, Ambassadors, donors, and all other volunteers. Despite the odds, despite the staggering weight of institutional inertia standing in the way, these are the indomitable few who rushed in to fight for justice where others feared to tread. One day historians will know the names of these fearless, selfless activists. We are so proud of our teammates and we will keep marching alongside of you until the “empire of medical mythology is shorn of its power to imperil people’s lives.”Indeed, we are the generation that finally said, enough is enough. Go Team End Endo!
