"We are dedicated to providing substantive activities that will educate and inform, as well as support women who have uterine fibroids," says Sateria Venable, the founder and executive director of The Fibroid Foundation. "We are committed to making sure that our July activities take fibroids awareness to the next level."

The campaign

The Fibroid Foundation created the #FACEofFIBROIDS ( to coincide with the start of Fibroids Awareness Month. At this site, women may upload a photo, describe their fibroid experience, and tell what fibroids freedom would mean to them. They will also have the option to share their entry on their personal social media feed. "This will give women living with uterine fibroids the opportunity to tell their stories and support each other," says Venable. "It will personalize the experience of millions of women."

She continued, "One of our goals with this first-of-its kind campaign is to create an online movement to raise awareness of a health concern that affects women all over the world." Venable, after experiencing four fibroid surgeries, has been a patient advocate for over ten years.

Earlier this month, The Fibroid Foundation hosted #TwittIRchat. The "IR" represents the field of Interventional Radiology - physicians that perform Uterine Fibroid Embolizations (UFE). #TwittIRchat was co-hosted with the Society of Interventional Radiology.
