The Endometriosis Foundation held its’ 8th Annual Blossom Ball last week with 3 leading ladies — Padma Lakshmi, Lena Dunham, Allison Williams and Susan Sarandon. The ladies showed everyone what Endo Fab looks like to help drive the importance of Endometriosis awareness with inspiration and laughter.

Allison Williams gave a speech to usher in Lena’s acceptance of her first Blossom Award, and it sounded more like a break-up conversation that she would have with a guy that didn’t deserve to be with her friend:

Screw you for making my friend, Lena Dunham, feel pain, worry and weakness. Screw you for inflecting pain on this brilliant writer, advocate, producer, actress, editor, activist, director, daughter, friend and girlfriend.
Her revenge will be her living her life like you never existed, and we will do everything in our power to make sure that happens. We are going to delete you from her address book. We are going to tell her we never like you in the first place. We are going to tell that we ran into and you looked weird and awful. The women in this room and everyone in Lena’s life are going to make you miserable until you slake away and cease to cause her pain. She is too good for you, as are all of the women here so leave them alone!
There were many moments of awareness and self-discovery/ evaluation during Lena Dunham’s acceptance speech. She talked about her journey of discovering she had Endometriosis after 10 years of not even knowing it existed. Here a few quotes that summed up the amazing energy that came together to support the cause:

Thank you to my uterine tissue for growing in places that it shouldn’t…
I would like to give a shot out to my fallopian tubes for their hard work through this.
I like to thank my ovaries. You know I love you ovaries, even though you have acted pretty bitchy and weird these last 15 years.
