Tanika Gray - Founder's Story
Why am I doing this? The reason I started The White Dress Project is very personal. My mother lost two sets of twins due to fibroids and I was the only one of her children who survived, so it was very important to me to have a voice for the millions of women who have suffered the same way my mother did. I wanted an organization which could serve in memory of my lost brothers and sisters. I also have had a challenging fight with fibroids. I have had excessive bleeding, abdominal bloating and cramping for much of my life. Last July, I underwent a myomectomy and had 27 fibroids removed, and during my recovery knew that I had to do something to bring awareness to this condition. Earlier this year, I met with state representative, Alisha Thomas Morgan, and she sponsored a resolution that was passed through the House of Representatives declaring July Fibroid Awareness Month, HR 1898 in the state of Georgia.
