New York, NY, August 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Uterine Fibroids are a potentially dangerous condition in which benign tumors can develop in a woman's womb. While these tumors are not cancerous, they can grow over the years, causing moderate to extreme discomfort, and seriously affecting one's quality of life. And if ignored, they can cause complications that can be dangerous or even fatal.
Renee Brown, the co-founder of FibroidsProject.com, suffered from symptomatic uterine fibroids, which culminated with a myomectomy surgery to remove them. She remembers the months of confusion, of talking to other sufferers, of desperately trying to collate information and finding it too scanty – but unlike most other patients, she's decided to do something about it.
Fibroidsproject.com, which officially launches September 1st, 2010, is her solution to the problem. Working alongside co-founder Nnamdi G. Osuagwu, (who witnessed firsthand how having fibroids affected her life), she intends this site to be a beacon of hope to uterine fibroid patients everywhere, a place where they can glean accurate and up-to-date information about their condition and where they can meet other patients with the condition to exchange information and give and receive support.
But most of all, this site is a place where women with Uterine Fibroids can find understanding and know their options. And that is so crucial, because with understanding and knowledge comes hope.
Indeed, this site is an answer to an urgent need. Uterine fibroids are more common than most people think, with over 77% of women in the US being affected, and over 200,000 hysterectomies performed to treat this condition each year.
With FibroidsProject.com, all the information a patient needs will be right there, in one place, on one site – everything from an explanation of what causes the condition to how it can affect one's quality of life. A woman with this condition can talk to other women with uterine fibroids, and can examine the latest advances that medicine has made against this condition.
The Fibroids Project is the brainchild of Renee Brown, Career Transformation Strategist and owner of Your Career My Advice and Nnamdi G. Osuagwu, Information Technology Consultant and owner of Strategic Generation. The Fibroids Project is the duo's first venture into Social Entrepreneurship. Its mission is to: “Make Life Better for Women with Fibroids.” For more information visit www.FibroidsProject.com.
