Review for DES Action USA, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

DES is one of the most important non profits. It began so long ago, about 70 years ago and still has major repercussions to the mothers, daughters, sons and grand daughters/grandsons today.
I found that so many GYN/OB physicians, and General doctors know nothing about it. The horrible effects besides breast, prostate cancer, infertility and other problems are showing up today. Yet, blood and bone tests never list it as a possibility. I will email my own, my mother’s and daughters horrendous story and also mention about what happened to my other relatives.
I was fortunate in one way because of Des coalition. I found out because of them about the vanguard in laser surgery, research and educator, Dr. John Marlowe. I had to fly to Washington DC over 35 years ago to seek help from him.
More and more research is needed today than ever before. It is a sad state that I had to explain to so many doctors, nurses, gyn’s and other health professionals about DES. The DES non profit must continue.
