Supermodel Beverly Johnson teams with Ask4UFE to launch a podcast series that helps women suffering in silence understand their uterine fibroid treatment options.
Rockland, MA (PRWEB) November 9, 2009 -- Fibroid tumors aren't life threatening, but they are life altering, says supermodel Beverly Johnson, during a new 3-part podcast series that promotes Ask4Tell4, a campaign sponsored by BioSphere Medical and Ask4UFE to raise awareness about uterine fibroid treatment options.
During this podcast series Beverly shares her own experience with symptomatic uterine fibroids, including the excessive bleeding, bloating and discomfort that kept her from enjoying life. Like so many women, Beverly felt uninformed and unprepared for the drastic changes she experienced after her hysterectomy, which is currently the most common treatment for alleviating uterine fibroid symptoms.
As the national spokesperson for Ask4Tell4, Beverly is empowering women to ask the questions she didn't. And with the help of Steven Smith, M.D., Interventional Radiologist at Adventist LaGrange Hospital in LaGrange, Illinois, the podcast delivers detailed information that answers one of the most important questions a woman can ask: What options are available for the treatment of fibroids?
If you're one of the 3 million women suffering from symptoms associated with uterine fibroids, view these podcasts to understand your options for alleviating symptoms.
These podcasts represent BioSphere Medical's continued commitment to educating women about uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), a non-surgical, uterine sparing, minimally invasive treatment option. Research shows that many women who may be looking for information about fibroid treatment therapies are currently utilizing Facebook. You can visit Ask4UFE's Facebook Profile to view the podcasts and to also find Community Health Talk informational events taking place around the country. BioSphere Medical is pleased to be a pioneer in leveraging new and innovative communication channels in order to educate women on all fibroid treatment options.
