Eugenia talks with Sydney Karr, Vice-President, Sickle Cell Thalassemia Patients Network (SCTPN), and Pastor Gregory Griffin, Roberson Memorial Church, about how men can support their partners that suffer from fibroid disease. The free program can be seen on @fibroidfighers Instagram Live.

Buie, who suffered from fibroid disease before undergoing successful UFE treatment, hosts the IG Live, “Girls, Let’s Chat” to help other women, learn more about fibroid symptoms and treatment.
An estimated 26 million Americans have fibroids; of those, about 15 million suffer from debilitating symptoms, including heavy menstrual bleeding, intense pelvic pressure or pain, bladder problems, and fertility issues.
As a Fibroid Fighters Ambassador, Buie strives to bring authentic conversation about fibroids, symptoms, and treatment to women across the United States, sharing their fibroid journeys to increase awareness about this disease. The National Institutes of Health estimates that most women will develop one or more uterine fibroids during their reproductive lifespan. Black women are at an increased risk for fibroid disease.
The “Let’s Chat” Instagram Live is a free event and airs on Fibroid Fighters’ Instagram site. For more information and resources about fibroids, symptoms, and treatment options, visit https://www.fibroidfighters.org/ and subscribe to Join the Fight Newsletter for the latest fibroid health news.
