I am a DES daughter, had my complete hysterectomy at age 18. I thank God I found this group. I was alone before, knowing DES had ruined my life. But now I'm not alone any more, I don't struggle wondering if there is anyone else like me out there. They are here for me, especially Fran. She opened a world of knowledge and information about DES to those of us afflicted with this deadly life changing pharmaceutical poison. Our mothers felt guilty for maiming their children, many not knowing how to explain to their own children the cause of their infertility and health maladies associated with DES. I've been a member for quite a few years, got sicker unable to donate any longer . . it took me awhile to write and let Fran know I was living below poverty level, and suffering with continued maladies. Fran knew I couldn't pay for the news letter and out of the goodness of her heart, she never forgets me. I'm 55 now, childless with few family members left. But I know if I ever needed a kind heart, a willing ear to listen to my heart ache, complaints and woes, Fran and everyone on the DES member list would welcome me with open arms. Thank God for DES Action. And I know there are more DES daughters, sons, and 3rd generation people out there who have no idea this group exists. I pray they find us, and don't hesitate to read, educate and commune with those of us who live with DES tragedy daily.
