Loss of hand function threatens our independence, our well-being and our livelihoods; hand and Britain’s hand surgeons are dedicated to restoring these after injuries or diseases.”
Now the hand doctors medical charity, the British Society for Surgery of the Hand, is launching a crowd funder for its first ever book, Hands Re:Worked – a montage of photographs celebrating hand patients, their inspiring stories and their hands, reclaimed with the help of surgery.
Hands Re:Worked showcases a wide variety of inspiring patients’ stories, from para-triathletes to stonemasons, Archbishops to survivors of terrorist attacks. The project will be financed by crowd funding with any additional money going to the BSSH charitable work.
