Des Action USA
November 7, 2012

The news broke about the risk of a rare vaginal cancer for women exposed in the womb to DES when I was 19 - supposedly the peak age of risk. My normally peaceful mother was very upset when she called me at college to tell me. My mother's doctor had told her drugs wouldn't cross the placental barrier during her pregnancy with me. Now we know better - and that is due in part to the endless pushing and refusing to shut up and go away by DES Action. And they have never stopped pushing for testing and studies and legislation to get everyone the help they need. The effects of my exposure have been difficult but it would be harder if I didn't know why I had these problems. DES Action has been a lifeline of support and information.
