Uterine fibroids and focused ultrasound have finally received the attention that they deserve! Last night, the CBS Evening News aired a story on focused ultrasound that we hope will raise awareness of the burden of uterine fibroids on women and position focused ultrasound as a vital treatment option for women looking for options to hysterectomy.
The Focused Ultrasound Surgery Foundation, through its patient support initiative, Fibroid Relief, is dedicated to educating women about Focused Ultrasound and ensuring that women are empowered with information to make the best decision for their health. The CBS Evening News segment reinforces our commitment to spreading the word about focused ultrasound and encouraging uterine fibroid patients to request coverage from their insurance providers for this non-surgical treatment option.
Stephanie Small, the Fibroid Relief Patient Advocate highlighted in the segment, is one of many women helping us to shift this treatment paradigm and provide access for all women to this treatment. Stephanie’s steadfast conviction to find the right treatment options for her lifestyle, and commitment to helping other women struggling with uterine fibroids, demonstrates how one person can make a difference. We are proud of Stephanie and feel confident that her message of empowerment and hope reached many other women suffering daily with the uncomfortable symptoms of uterine fibroids.
