CARE About Fibroids Launches Website, Social Media Campaign to Promote Education, Awareness of Uterine Fibroids

CARE (Community, Action, Research, and Education) About Fibroids, a recently-formed nonprofit women’s health organization dedicated to increasing awareness of uterine fibroids, today unveiled a patient-centered online resource to help educate and inform patients about uterine fibroids. The website,, serves as a one-stop shop for the “411” on uterine fibroids, as well as a compilation of resources and published studies on fibroids.

The website builds on CARE About Fibroids’ mission to elevate the conversation surrounding uterine fibroids, an under-recognized condition that can seriously impact the health and fertility of millions of American women each year. CARE About Fibroids’ carefully-curated and scientifically-reviewed online resource is accessible to anyone interested in learning more about fibroids.
CARE About Fibroids is launching its online resource at a time when estimates are that between 70 percent and 80 percent of women will have uterine fibroids by the age of 50. Yet, due to lack of awareness or the belief that fibroids are a problem to be endured, many women go undiagnosed and untreated.

Among women in the U.S., uterine fibroids are significantly under-diagnosed and under-treated, despite being declared a public health burden by the National Institute of Health (NIH). Collectively, the price tag of symptomatic uterine fibroids, including lost work and disability, approaches $34 billion a year.
