Good People Doing Great Things: Jane Akre & Corporate Action Network
June 5, 2014
I’m an idiot and do the exact opposite of what every other person does when they’re about to talk to someone they’ve never met before on the phone for the first time. I don’t Google them. Counterintuitive yes, but I want to hear people’s stories from them.
I had the extreme honor and privilege to speak with Jane Akre who started Mesh Medical News Desk, getting the stories of tens of thousands of women who have been harmed by mesh out in the media (which despite over 40,000 cases in the US alone) is not an easy task.
She is selfless, humble and a true fighter. If only I’d know just how much of a fighter before our conversation. She mentioned casually fighting Fox News as a reference to how she became an advocate. She downplayed that she was featured in the 2003 documentary The Corporation. Embarrassingly the documentary has been recommended to me several times and is now on this weekend’s must do list.
Please support Jane in her newest venture Corporate Action Network launching what is planned to be the first of a 50 state campaign to urge the Attorneys General of all 50 states to investigate healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson for mesh-injuries and their related costs and the destruction of documents requested in litigation.
BOYCOTT Johnson & Johnson who is NOW CONFIRMED to have improperly destroyed files about some vaginal-mesh implants
