Carla Dionne - Site Author, age 3                   Click picture for current photo

I know. You were expecting a photo of the current me. Sorry to disappoint you. However, I chose this photo for one very important reason: uterine fibroids is all about simply being female. Millions upon millions of women get uterine fibroids. Thirty seven percent (37%) of all women in the United States undergo hysterectomy by the age of 60--the majority of them due to uterine fibroids. And, 55% of those women have serious psychosocial problems to contend with post-hysterectomy as a result. Is that what you really want for your daughter?

Take a look around you. Take a look at your daughters, your wife, your mother, your co-workers, even your best friend. . .and then tell me that this isn't worth fighting for and researching a solution to fix this problem.
