You Changed the WORLD!

Something wo12277111_1906738929551954_297280116_n.jpgnderful happened today! I received a letter from an 8th grader in Ohio. She read an article about uterus transplants and wanted to write to someone affected by MRKH. It’s part of a class assignment on current events. Here are her questions:
  • I was wondering what it is like to have MRKH.
  • Are there many medical problems involved with this disease?
  • Would you be interested in getting a uterus transplant?
  • Are there many people living with the disease?
  • Do you think that uterus transplants will become popular among people with MRKH?
  • Is there any way to treat MRKH besides the uterus transplant?
I can’t begin to describe the feelings. It’s goosebumps and elation and knowing that an entire class of 8th graders will have heard about MRKH.
Thank you to all of the MRKH Community for taking 10 days to spread awareness, to create videos, send in pictures, stories and poems. You are changing the WORLD!

    All of our efforts over the past 3 years are changing lives. I received a letter today from an 8th grader asking about MRKH. This is one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. One of our goals is to live in a world where MRKH is openly discussed. This is just the beginning.

    That is so amazing, wow. Thinking back only a few years and it was hard to find even a doctor that have heard of it, and know im sure every doctor has heard and know about MRKH. And that an entire class know will hear about it as a school assignment, wow who would have thought that would ever happen three years back. THank you for sharing this, it made me smile ear to ear 🙂
