In My Own Words: Women’s Experiences of Hysterectomy

Several years ago, I began a project that involved asking users of the Hysterectomy Association to tell us their own stories and experience of hysterectomy. Over the years, many stories have been submitted and it’s interesting to me to see how they have helped other women come to terms with the same, or similar issues.

Earlier this year I decided to see if we could bring these stories together into a single volume of work called In My Own Words: Women’s Experiences of Hysterectomy. The plan is to use a platform called Kickstarter to see if we can get the project funded to the tune of £2,500 from a large group of people each providing just a small proportion of the funds needed. Will you help me to raise the funds necessary?
