So many women understand the concept of what is happening in the mesh world and they have shared their concerns that something may happen to my daughter and I. It is because of their worries that I am addressing this, this morning.
Kim and I are not foolish nor unaware that something ‘could’ happen. But this blog reaches thousands and I am sure over the four years lawyers and doctors read it, besides all the sick women. So you are all witnesses to what is happening and if nothing goes up here or on my daughter’s Stop Mesh site for several days, then I hope someone will contact the District Attorney’s office in Houston and make them aware of this blog.
I am completely aware that this has caused an explosion of emotion between women. I am also aware that I will be left standing alone. But regardless sometimes in life you have to do the right thing and for me this IS the right thing to do.
Yes it will and it has cost me and I have been slammed by ridiculous suppositions such as bribery, slander and extortion. Well, if stating the truth that there are lawyers or people who will speak out at an upcoming tort convention is libelous, it is ridiculous. Or that these people are in a closed support group run by Jane that is ridiculous too. There is proof. I personally believe a women’s mesh injury support group is no place for lawyers. You may have another opinion and that is your right.
I told Estelle that I would not use her name on the blog again, but even though my daughter has corresponded with her, sharing the discrepancies that were pointed out to her by other women, Estelle is sharing my email to her with everyone she can think of including women who were very special to me.
Someone else told me in public that a woman who SAID she is a lawyer contacted her about Jane Akre using a video that some of us were in, as something that Jane used for profiting from mesh injured women’s cases. So this morning I am going to address that so that you all know what is going on.
I have not been contacted by anyone about this video but if I had been this is what I would have done. Anyone can say anything, but if they are a lawyer there will be proof. A name and a law firm. If it is by phone, I would asked for that proof, in fact the law firm would be on my telephone I.D. Then I would Google the company and IN WRITING I would ask for the person to explain themselves as to exactly what they want. I would not do any of this over the phone. I hope I now have made this clear.
Kim and I are not a part of any investigation against Jane and if there is, it is not because of us. It is because women were upset when she asked on the Medical Mesh News Desk support group, for their details including their lawyers. I know that many women immediately contacted their lawyers. What happened after that is none of my business because it is attorney/client privilege. I did not contact my lawyer because they know Jane Akre.
I did not want to be part of any video that I felt was about mesh companies and I have stated why, many times on this blog. I pulled out of the documentary for that reason and that reason alone. Others may not share that opinion and they have a right to do so.
Everything that I have shared here or my daughter has shared on her site came about because mesh injured women have to right to know or the right to ignore. I personally do not believe any political action group should be involved with my mesh case and that is the feeling of many other women. It is a personal opinion and it was my right to know about and choose. How many women even knew that there was any involvement with such an organization before we broke the news? If you do not want to know then please do not read any of it. That is also your right.
