The Power of Sharing One's Story

MITSS has a "Share Your Story" feature on our website -- for both patients and families as well as clinicians. Recently, a mother who lost her newborn baby due to a series medical errors was kind and courageous enough to share her story with us. Check out Wendy's Story just posted to our site (

We would like to encourage anyone who has a story to share it with us and the entire MITSS community. While the facts may not the same, the feelings are all too common, and by sharing your experience with an adverse medical event, you may help other patients and family members on their journey toward healing.

After all, we are all in this together, and this is just another way that we can support and learn from each other.
