Hello! Welcome to the Canadian MRKH Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation founded by MRKH advocate, Ashley Clark. We are so excited to have brought on a team of passionate, driven individuals to continue Ashley's original mission to support, educate and empower those born with MRKH Syndrome in Canada and beyond. The Canadian MRKH Foundation is currently the only patient-run resource for those with MRKH in Canada (one of the reasons for registering as a foundation!) In addition to annual events, virtual meet-ups and fundraisers, we raise money to fund other MRKH initiatives like mailing MRKH Identification cards across the globe to make communication easier between MRKH patients and doctors who may not be familiar with the syndrome, and advocating to raise awareness about MRKH to make it more well-known among the general public and especially the medical community to make it less taboo and a better healthcare experience for those living with MRKH.

THE MEANING BEHIND IT...
At first glance it’s a bud, positioned at the centre of a spiral to represent the winding journey of how we come to be diagnosed with MRKH. This bud is full of potential for beauty and growth. From an anatomy perspective, the bud can be seen as a fallopian tube meeting its ovary, to signify the female reproductive organs we do have. When experiencing grief, what we have is often clouded by what we don't. And, finally, the dot dot dot to represent what isn’t there, or isn’t there in part; the commonality linking us together. The Canadian MRKH Foundation is here to provide connection and resources, where buds come to meet other buds to bloom together, growing to love themselves, in a community encouraging resiliency and empowerment.
