24 years later and here we go again... This time, there's no going backwards !
I would like to give thanks to this remarkable lady, Laura Bowden who has helped pave a way for her fellow sisters that have been harmed by these chemical bags over 24 years ago!
Her courage to stand up for her life and for others, brought me to tears when I watched this video. It was hard to listen to all the lies from the manufacture of Dow Corning! There is No going back! Thank you warrior sister, you’ve helped many and will impact many more coming behind us <3 !!! So happy our paths crossed <3
Laura Bowden’s story~
Sooo.... Pull up a chair. Grab some popcorn. Or just keep scrolling. Sorry about the length. A lot to say. It was because of this BRAVE woman, Jenny Jones, that my life was saved. I was sick. Very sick. Even though so many doctors told me for 2 yrs it had NOTHING to do with my implants. I KNEW my body. I KNEW that they were making me extremely ill. I was 2 weeks away from having them removed by my plastic surgeon. Who, by the way, told me there was NO connection, NO scientific study showing that’s why I was so ill, but he would take them out under a local in his office if I wanted. I wanted them out. I was sitting in my grandmas apartment. Watching Jenny Jones. And there she was talking about all her symptoms from her implants. It. Was. Me. A support Group scrolled on the bottom of the screen. I called it. I was given a lifeline that night. Her name was Vicki. She told me if I went back to my surgeon he would have killed me. Him not believing silicone was making women sick, he would have ruptured my implant during removal and left the scar capsule in. Which would have continued my declining health. She was able to give me a list of doctors names that were BRAVE enough to acknowledge breast implant illness. Sadly far and few between. 2 weeks in Texas at Baylor University Hospital. Implants taken out intact in scar capsule. 5 hour surgery. Far cry from under a local in my doctors office. Symptoms went away IMMEDIATELY. Important to note. Mine were INTACT. Same illness. ALL silicone implants bleed. The Manufacturers have known it for years I came to find out. I met 3 floors of sick women at that hospital. Promised I would be their voice until I died or until something changed. Scott and I ran a support group for 3 yrs. I was going to save EVERY woman. As mine was saved. I was one of the “LUCKY ONES”. In my Neurologists words. I became an Activist for awareness regarding breast implant illness. Sharing TRUTH about the CORRUPTION, COVERUP and LIES within the IMPLANT Manufacturers. Also the DOCTORS. Brotherhood. So much power. And here, I find myself speaking out again. How can we still be talking about this after all these years? 28 yrs? And still...A whole next generation of sick woman. I met brave sweet Latasha for a purpose. There are no coincidences in life. So much of the reason of where my passion comes from.❤️ Breaks my heart.
