Ghanaian singer, Adina, has commenced an advocacy to curb fibroid among Ghanaian women using her social media platform to raise awareness.
The campaign pledges to educate the general public especially females about the disease.
Fibroids are abnormal growths that develop in or on a woman’s uterus. Sometimes these tumors become quite large and cause severe abdominal pain and heavy periods.
In other cases, they cause no signs or symptoms at all. The growths are typically benign, or noncancerous. The cause of fibroids isn’t well understood.
Risk factors include a family history of fibroids, obesity, or early onset of puberty.
Realizing the negative consequences of fibroid after a surgery to remove hers, Adina, also known in real life as, Adina Thembi Ndamse, has started the campaign to raise awareness about the situation.
“Today marks exactly three months since I had surgery to take out my fibroids and I’m grateful to God for a successful recovery so far!
Happy to announce my upcoming Fibroid Awareness campaign.
There’s Much more to come, stay tuned #beautifulinside #Araba,” Adina wrote.
The ‘Take Care of You’ crooner indicated that he started the advocacy to make sufferers and society know about the situation in order to curb it. She said she is using her platforms as an influencer to embark on such a campaign to inform the public about the disease women suffer.
