I'm a French DES daughter born in 1971. DES Action USA provides invaluable support and advice to the many victims of the DES drug scandal not only in America but in many other countries such as the UK. The work that they do to identify, educate, provide support to, and advocate for DES-exposed individuals as well as educate health care professionals is critical as the effects of this carcinogenic drug continue to be seen. Health risks associated with DES exposure continue to be identified in DES-exposed women as they age as well as in their offspring. Animal studies have shown effects in the next generation (grandchildren) through the multi-generational effects of the drug. More research and funding are critically needed to support this generation. With years of experience in advocating for the DES victims they also provide invaluable resources to DES groups and individuals who combat the adverse effects of DES and the wall of silence around DES issues in all corners of the globe where DiEthylStilbestrol (DES) was also prescribed to pregnant women. I'm grateful for their support and the work that they do on behalf of all DES victims and their families.
