Charitable / Service / Non-Profit Organizations
The Maddy Massabni Foundation for Menstrual Toxic Shock Awareness was founded in honor of Maddy Massabni, who died on March 30, 2017, at the age of 19 from menstrual toxic shock syndrome. We have made it our lives' work to increase awareness of menstrual toxic shock syndrome (mTSS) through education and legislative advocacy to save lives.
Every day, the lives of women and girls are threatened by menstrual toxic shock syndrome (mTSS) due to tampon use and lack of education regarding the associated risks, dangers, signs, and symptoms of this serious and preventable illness.
Our mission is to make the world safer for our daughters, sisters, friends, and wives. Our foundation has been making a difference worldwide from speaking engagements and articles in international publications to working with legislators creating bills that change women's healthcare. We will not rest until women have been empowered with the necessary, life-saving educational materials to help prevent complications and needless deaths from mTSS.
