All in Breast Reconstruction

My interview/story with The Peace Arch News warning about the dangers of all breast implants.

Long term safety data doesn't exist. Leading manufacturers were recently severed warning letters by FDA for being non-compliant in the requirements placed on them in the 'conditional' approval of implants in 2006. France just recalled textured implants because of them being implicated with higher incidence of BIA-ALCL.

Also, true informed consent doesn't exist .. women aren't being informed of all the possible complications that can occur .. and without ingredient disclosure, patients and doctors have no idea what's being implanted in women.

Professor J.W Cohen Tervaert, one of the most powerful speeches to the FDA on breast implants and the dangers.

Dr. Jan Willem Cohen Tervaert is basically from The Netherlands. He is a graduate of the Medical School, Groningen, the Netherlands. In 1993, he became Medical specialist with clinics in different locations; specialization: disorders such as systemic auto-immune diseases, vasculitis, foreign body reactions, immune defiencies and unsolved clinical problems.

He was appointed as Head of the Immunology Laboratory as well as Medical specialist, Department of Internal Medicine, Reumatology and Gastro-enterology in University Hospital Maastricht, Maastricht in 2000. In 2012, he was appointed as Research Director, Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland, Rotterdam.

The grieving process sets in....

Grieving is a process…it comes at different times and sometimes its like a wave! Last year at this time, I was living in a body that was failing me and I so desperately needed help and answers which I wasn’t getting.

I have no idea how I have come through this when panic attacks started to take over. I knew, I had to go inward and deal with these emotions that were profoundly loud in my head. I remember hearing a saying from a few years back about pain that kept creeping into my mind, β€œpay attention inward now!”

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 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!
