Fibroid Foundation UnGala 2021

The Fibroid Foundation (https://www.fibroidfoundation.org), a patient-founded nonprofit dedicated to fibroid education, research, treatment innovation and legislation, announces UnGala 2021.

The 'UnGala' is the Fibroid Foundation's annual fundraising event. The Fibroid Foundation annual UnGala 2021 will air virtually on Saturday, November 13 at 7:00 P.M. eastern standard time.

RSVP for an elegant evening filled with inspiration, awards and live music. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a special raffle that will include several incredible items.

The 2021 honorees are:

Each year The Fibroid Foundations supports a global community of thousands with educational programming, local chapter networks, legislative advocacy, and more. Did you know that 70% of all women develop uterine fibroids?  With these shocking statistics, it might seem that everyone would be familiar with the term 'fibroid',  but this is not the case. Most people know someone who has struggled with fibroids.1 Approximately 26 million U.S. women are affected by uterine fibroids.2

The good news - through the work of The Fibroid Foundation, progress is being made. This year, the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Fibroid Research and Education Act was introduced in the House (H.R. 2007) and Senate (S.2444). The advocacy efforts of the Foundation and its community members advanced this legislation. Supporting UnGala 2021 will improve advocacy outcomes and expand research funding in the uterine fibroid space.

With community support, the stigma around fibroids and menstruation can be erased.3
