July is Fibroid Awareness Month
Change the Cycle, in partnership with The White Dress Project, is continuing the fight to recognize July as Fibroid Awareness Month nationally. Did you know that up to 80% of all women will have fibroids by the age of 50?1 Now, is the time to talk about fibroids as an important women’s health issue.
Use the hashtag #WhyIWearWhite to raise awareness of National Fibroid Awareness Month and tell the world that fibroids don’t need to control your lifestyle.
