Co-Chair, Shooting Star, Comet, Shining Star, Binary Star
Hey! I'm Vics, I am the Founder and Director of MRKH Stars. I'm on the Superstars, Shooting Stars and Writing teams.
I was diagnosed with MRKH in July 2019, and created MRKH Stars in April 2021. My Journey has been far from easy, there have been many bumps in the road, and I am sure there are many more to come!
But I have made some of my best friends because of MRKH and we help each other through all of those bumps, something I'm so grateful to have. I founded Stars to build on that sense of belonging, community and easy access to help, focusing specifically for those MRKHers who are young and newly diagnosed. Stars will always be here for you, we are always only a message away!

Hello! I'm Mia and I run the Friends of MRKH Stars scheme.I study English at University and I am currently in my second year. I am friends with Vics and have been increasingly interested in her charity (and proud of course!!!!). She gave me the opportunity to run friends/family events and I jumped at the idea. I look forward to supporting such an amazing charity.

Hello! I'm Alexa and I'm on the writing team! I'm a nurse from Miami, FL. I got diagnosed with MRKH when I was 16 years old. I remember feeling so lost the first few years of my diagnosis, trying to forget it ever happened. As I got older I started to accept MRKH and i have grown a lot because of it. When I found MRKH Stars I thought it would be a great opportunity to get more involved. I am still very private about my MRKH in my personal life. But I want to change that little by little. I think once I start talking about MRKH more, I'm not only helping others but I'm also helping myself. I'm looking forward to sharing my story and helping those who are feeling lost like I once was.
Hello! My name is Audrey, I am 35 years old, a mother to almost 7 year old twins; Liam and Brinley and I have MRKH. 20 years ago, I was diagnosed with MRKH and little did I know just how much those four letters would change my world. In the beginning of my diagnosis I was just as confused as everyone else, including the doctors. Thankfully, social media came around and finally at the age of 34 I began finding others like me. My goal as a Comet is to show others that all things are possible. Those four letters do not define you, you have a purpose in life, and you are not alone.
Hi, my name is Bailee! I’m from Mississippi, US. I have two sisters and two dogs. In my free time, I love to be with my friends and family. My journey with MRKH began May 6th of this year. I first had many doctors appointments from this day to figure out I had MRKH. I was officially diagnosed My 13th just two days after my 16th birthday. As a newly 16 year old, I didn’t know how to handle all of the emotions that flooded me when I was given the news. For a while, I was extremely hard on myself and wanted to be “fixed” (dilated) and done with all of it. I was just going to worry about the baby part when I got to that part of my life. I’m SO thankful I didn’t give up. Some ways I take care of myself on my worst days are simply self care. I make sure I pamper myself as much as I can and just try to be extremely kind and patient with myself. I highly encourage everyone with any type of syndrome like ours to make sure they have a good support system whether it be family, friends, teachers, etc. 😊
Hi I'm Ceri and I am so happy and excited to be on the Comets team. I was diagnosed at 18 years old and now I am 38. I wanted to join the team so someone is there for us older ladies. The ones that have seen changes like womb transplants and people knowing more about our condition then before. I know we feel excited for our younger sisters who are looking at the changes but we feel sorrow too that it wasn't there for us. I want us older ones to know its ok to feel a little overwhelmed still and have days where having this is not ok but we are not alone! I also want to be there to support our younger newly diagnosed sisters as best I can. Keep strong, your story is never finished just waiting on a new chapter!!
Hi my name is Harriet, I'm 19 years old, and I was diagnosed with MRKH 3 years ago in 2021. I decided to join Stars because I wanted to help others with MRKH who are struggling to understand their emotions towards their diagnosis, while in the process of also helping myself to understand and become more comfortable and confident with my own diagnosis, Joining Stars has been a really big achievement for me because I’m not very talkative about my MRKH I’m quite private with that part of my life, but I’m slowly learning that it’s ok to share and open up about my MRKH to others that understand what life with MRKH is like.

Hi I’m Prue, I’m a 36yr old nurse from Melbourne Australia, living in Sydney. I was 17 when I was diagnosed with MRKH. That time in my life from when I was diagnosed was an incredibly difficult time for me. I was subject to so many tests and doctors, who most had never heard of MRKH, it was really lonely and sad period of my life. I wasn’t me anymore. I met my now husband Tom when I was 19, and we’ve been together ever since. We’ve endured over 10 years of trying to conceive with infertility treatments. It’s felt like the longest journey to get here, but now I’m the 3rd women in Australia to have a Uterus Transplant. I couldn’t have gotten through all of this without Tom. Our love and devotion has weathered many storms, but we are stronger for it. Now I feel stronger than ever. I want to use my voice to share my story, inspire and help other women who feel they cannot speak. Thank you to the amazing MRKH Stars for the support!
Hello! My name is Sara, I'm 28 years old and I live near Turin in Italy. I was diagnosed with MRKH when I was 15 years old via MRI. My life is full of challenges to face everyday also because I've been blind since birth. I've learned to be strong and love my body even though sometimes it's not easy at all. I am very happy to be part of this community
Hey! I'm "Sara", I am a Pakistani woman 31 years of old who's carving out a career in tech and management. I've faced a lot of challenges along the way, but the biggest one was being diagnosed with MRKH at age 14. Living with this condition has taught me resilience, perseverance, and the power of self-love. I'm here to inspire others to embrace their uniqueness and chase their dreams, no matter what obstacles they face.
