WELCOME TO MRKH STARS
MRKH Stars was founded for all those young and newly diagnosed MRKH warriors out there...
We know that a diagnosis of MRKH is SUPER tough, but we've got you! You don't have to go through this journey alone. MRKH Stars director Tk runs an initiative called Shooting Stars, we have a whole team of MRKHers who are only a message away and can support you through this journey, whilst Vics runs a whole array of projects aiming to provide information, support and advice.
Our team is always growing and we are looking for people to share their story with us as a guest contributor or as a regular member of our team. Alternatively, if you would like to support a newly diagnosed MRKHer as a member of Tk's Shooting Stars team, get in touch and we can have a chat, we look forward to hearing from you.

WHO ARE WE?
Advocate. Supporter. Friend.
MRKH Stars is a charity run by co-directors Vics and Tk and we support young and newly diagnosed MRKH warriors. We are 20 and 21, both have MRKH, and have become best-friends on this journey since we connected through advocacy and started managing Stars together.
MRKH Stars is UK based but we have a global team, and an international MRKH buddy scheme too! This is managed by Tk, to get an MRKH buddy all you need to do is send us a 🌠 emoji and we will know what you need! She will assign you to a member of her dedicated Shooting Stars team who will be there to answer any questions you have and support you on your MRKH journey.
Our Secretary Mia co-ordinates the Friends of MRKH Stars scheme, for supporting the parents, partners, friends and families of those living with MRKH, we also have 2 MRKH parents on our trustee team too!
To get involved in any advocacy projects, connect/collaborate with us, or to share your story with us, send us a ✨ emoji and Vics will take you through that process and support you every step of the way. We are always looking for new voices and new team members, there’s a role for everyone, get in touch to get involved with us!
Remember we are here to support you through your journey, you don’t have to go through this alone. Always know to:

WHAT DO WE DO?
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
Here at MRKH Stars, we offer support in a number of ways! Our site and social media platforms will keep you informed with upcoming events and ways to connect with the MRKH community and support network.
SHARING OUR STORIES
Every MRKH story is unique and personal, but our voices deserve to be heard, and should not be silenced because of taboos or stigmas. We hope that by giving MRKHers the chance to have a voice and share their story, readers feel less alone, because MRKH should not be tackled alone, and our stories show that you are not alone, ever.
The newly diagnosed phase of MRKH is arguably one of the most integral. It's new, it's isolating and it's unbelievably painful. With that in mind, MRKH Stars runs a Shooting Stars scheme whereby one of our team, who has been equipped with skills in order to help you to navigate this stage of life, can be a friend and a part of your support network. To be matched with a Shooting Star, get in touch with us and we can arrange it!
