HysterSisters takes on partner to manage continued growth and longevity
Posted On Date 12-05-2016 - 10:07 AM
I have news that is wonderful and exciting! This week’s migration wasn’t a typical migration - from one set of servers to another. Our migration moved HysterSisters into a new partnership that is definitely win-win.
In 1998 when I had my hysterectomy and launched this website, my goal was simple: I wanted a way to provide helpful information for women who were having a hysterectomy. This great “experiment” of a community online became the place on the internet to get support and find answers surrounding the hysterectomy experience.
Since that time, as founder and owner, I’ve been spinning many plates in the air - with the help of multiple teams to get it all done: Web development. Technology upgrades.
