‘Kathleen’s courageous journey and search for truth is revealed in her harrowing story of personal loss and grave injustice.’ —Dr Harry Barry

At the hands of Dr Michael Neary, Kathleen Ward underwent an unplanned and unnecessary hysterectomy at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda. In this powerful memoir, Kathleen relates her story with honesty and sincerity. For Kathleen, what followed was a dark period filled with debilitating panic attacks and an internal state of paralysis. However, Kathleen's account is ultimately one of personal healing and of how she successfully rebuilt her life following the procedure. 

Everybody welcome.
