Women Who've Lived It Bring Awareness to Fibroids

Uterine Fibroids affect women of all ages, races, from all parts of the world, in different ways. Some have nearly lost their lives in an effort to simply be relieved of their symptoms and the trauma it has caused to their bodies. Living with fibroids is not always easy. Some women don’t recognize that these invasive tumors are the cause of their mental, physical, and emotional struggles. Some don’t even know that they have them.

We want to shed light on the stories of women who have suffered, and some who continue to suffer from uterine fibroids. We also want to provide a voice to those who can identify on a secondary level because they affect those around us as well. Even in 2020, there are no answers as to how something so unnatural can live inside of us, controlling our lives on a daily basis. This is a subject that people need to know about, and one that requires more research in order for a solution to be found.

The goal is to spread awareness about fibroids via a virtual event. 100% of the proceeds earned from this event will be donated to an organization that fights for awareness, information, and change in regards to fibroids on a much higher level.  If we all do our part, better options can be provided for women dealing with such an unfortunate, yet very common issue.

Community is a huge necessity and if we can provide it through this process, we have done a good thing.



This event will include:

Information about uterine fibroids
Personal stories
A short film
Performances
Visual presentations




A poem:

Can I

maybe borrow some space

just for a little while,

for a smile I can keep;

sleeping in peace, knowing there’s

room for a person to breathe?

I have vocalized our dream

for so long. See,

there are so many more

like me here.

Doctors remain “confused” while

another body has been bruised,

reshaped

into something so unfamiliar.




I sleep,

deal,

hope.

If foreign tools be my only option,

I continue to wait

for a miracle.
