National Research Center for Women & Families, Inc.
March 28, 2011

I first used the health information provided by the National Research Center for Women & Families (NRC) in 2005 when I started having trouble with a breast implant, which had been implanted in 1990 immediately after my mastectomy. My oncologist, plastic surgeon, and surgeon told me the implant was fine (when in fact it had ruptured) but I could see that the size of the implant had diminished.

The NRC website was a great source of information for me. I also called and e-mailed the organization with specific questions, which were always answered to my complete satisfaction. I have also used NRC's information in researching articles I wrote about the leaking and rupture of breast cancer implants

The Great!

I have asked for information about the risks of breast implants as well as about medications for osteoporosis and received information that was very helpful in making my medical decisions.

I do not know enough about NRC's organization and operations to make suggestions for changes. I just hope they have the financial support and staff to continue to do the terrific job they do.

MY ROLE:
Donor & I contact NRC when I need advice regarding medications or medical devices.

Women's eNews
February 9, 2011

Hi:

I am a feminist activist, author, public speaker, and attorney. I am a NOW co-founder and I was the first woman attorney in the Office of the General Counsel at the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission).

I read several sources several times daily to keep up with developments impacting women and e-mail that information to my feminist e-mail list. The Womens eNews is an invaluable help to me in this regard.

The Great!
