Crowdfunding for uterine fibroid treatment
Today, women’s health related problems are of utmost importance, and require immediate attention, for a lot of women are losing their lives or are unable to live their best lives due to troubling health conditions. Diseases like polycystic ovarian disease, endometriosis, breast cancer, cervical and ovarian cancer, and uterine fibroids, are claiming innumerable lives. In fact, uterine fibroids have come to be known as a contributing factor in reproductive complications, and infertility. A study done on the incidence of uterine fibroid cases in South India came as a shock – 11.6% of 4487 women were examined and found to be positive for the presence of fibroids. Breast cancer in Indian women too, was a major cause for concern. But thanks to the awareness activities run by the government and nonprofit initiatives, the incidence of breast cancer has come down.
It’s time we use the same zeal to raise awareness about uterine fibroids amongst Indian men and women alike. With the help of a crowdfunding India, such initiatives can easily gain financial support from the community. This is why we at Impact Guru encourage people to take up causes that aim to alleviate women’s health related issues, by running crowdfunding India campaigns and raising funds for their initiatives.
Treatment and medications
Sponsor the medical treatment of one or more women who are living with uterine fibroids. Treatments like uterine artery embolization and other drugs to treat this condition can get quite expensive, especially for women from weaker sections of society. For such women, a crowdfunding campaign that will cover gynaecologist’s fees, treatment, and medicines, would be extremely helpful.
One of the most troubling factors in uterine fibroids are that the symptoms don’t often get recognized, which makes diagnosis of the condition difficult. You can raise money for various lab tests and diagnostic tests like pelvic or transvaginal ultrasounds, hysteroscopy, or laparoscopy. Moreover, conducting routine examinations for women who cannot afford such medical expenditures, will be a crucial step in prevention of uterine fibroids.
Myomectomy or hysterectomy surgery
In many cases that cannot be treated or reversed, women are advised to go in for surgical procedures that involve removal of the fibroids, or removal of the uterus all together. As with any surgical procedures, these too would add financial burden on the sufferer. If you or anyone you know requires surgery but cannot afford the expenses associated with it, you can raise money by starting a crowdfunding India campaign on Impact Guru.
Educate women on prevention measures
Nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise, excess consumption of alcohol or smoking, and other unhealthy lifestyle habits can contribute to uterine fibroids. By educating women on these factors, you can help them prevent the onset of fibroids. Moreover, educating them in recognizing certain symptoms will ensure quick redressal of the problem, so that it doesn’t progress.
Impact Guru understands the precautions that women must take for personal health and safety, and therefore we urge women all over the world to pursue crowdfunding as a viable method to raise funds, and battle uterine fibroids.
