About the White Dress Project
The purpose of The White Dress Project (TWDP) is to spread awareness on a global scale about the widespread occurrence of uterine fibroids. We aim to achieve this by promoting education, fostering research, building a supportive community, and advocating for better health. Our efforts are focused on educating individuals on fibroids and the available treatment options, collaborating on crucial research, empowering a united community to advocate for their improved health, and ending the silent suffering associated with fibroids.
As a non-profit organization, primarily made up of women with impactful fibroid journeys, we are uniquely positioned to educate, empower, and support those who are managing life with fibroids. Our work is actualized through our vibrant community, scientific and clinical research, and our advisory council of health practitioners, who are leaders within the field. Our community is our north star and guiding force as we work to create an environment where their health concerns are believed, all their options are accessible, and where community, research, advocacy, and science intersect.
Most women with fibroids do not like to wear white because of the heavy bleeding related to the condition. The “white dress” is not a fashion statement but a movement. It is an emblem of hope and strength for women who are suffering from fibroids and a reminder that we will find a cure.
