My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for DES Action USA, New York, NY, USA
Diethylstilbestrol DES was a horrible drug. It was prescribed to millions of unsuspecting women without any thought to the harm (cancer, infertility, etc. ) it would do even though there was evidence that the pharmaceutical industry knew it would cause harm. The resultant damage impacted not only the female offspring of these “moms-to be” but also the male offspring and now grandsons.
Were it not for the diligence and tenacity of DES Action and Pat Cody, this type of travesty would likely continue today. DES Action helped me SO much after it was identified that I had been exposed when I was 15 years old.
DES Action is instrumental in fostering continued research and education for those of us impacted. Another example of their phenomenal support is the CDC Awareness campaign to ensure that not only are the victims aware of the repercussions but also the newly trained medical professionals.
DES Action’s reach is worldwide and they deserve funding like no other organization or charity I support!
