A woman is selling her uterus on ebay. The reason why is tragic.

A woman is selling the rights to her uterus on ebay — to raise money for a very worthy, and very sad, cause.

April Creed’s friend Ann Truscott has terminal breast cancer and needs AUS$25,000 to fund treatment that will prolong her life, the Huffington Post reports.

Ann, a mother of five, already has bone and brain tumours, and she and her family have already drained their finances fighting the disease.

So April is doing everything she can to raise much-needed funds for her friend — including posting a listing to the online auction site advertising “future rights to my worn out uterus”.

The ebay listing.

“After I die, or alternatively if I’m forced to frolic with a hysterectomy … this beauty is all yours ….to do with what you will,” April writes on the listing, which has a starting bid of $2,500.

“Imagine the possibilities ! You could frame it, serve party nibbles in it, I reckon it would serve well as one of those cleaning mits,” she says. “Imagine your partner’s face when they unwrap it at christmas. Scratch that — give it to your mother-in-law…”

“My shiny Jynie scrubs up well . It’s all I have to offer … that and humour”.

April takes a less tongue-in-cheek tone on a seperate crowdfunding page on GoFundMe, where she fondly describes her ill friend as “an intelligent, funny, big hearted mother and wife”.

“She has worked hard all her life.  She loves to sew, her chooks, she even drops the odd profanity,” April writes.

“We all feel powerless against cancer . This is a very real and worthy way of fighting back. We can change the ending of this story.”
