Good People Doing Great Things: Jane Akre & Corporate Action Network

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

    With most, if not all, governmental regulatory agencies functioning as wholly owned subsidiaries of Big Corporate Interest, activism seem to be our last best hope for staving off the cancer of your well-named Sociopathic Model. As long as we have people like you and Ms.Akre, perhaps there’s hope. I know it makes me sleep a bit better. Thank you both.

  • Thank you Melayna… I thought you had seen The Corporation when we talked because of the sociopathic references… it is so accurate. I love this film! so cool… thanks for bringing it to new eyes… It’s worth watching! As is revisiting the power we let corporations have over our lives….!
    Thank you for speaking out! You are a hero.

  • If it had not been for Jane as well as a few others I would not be where I am right now. Laying here in tremendous amounts of pain after enduring 2 partiala..2 really rough RV trips cross the US (Ga to Ca) commenting on this just day after full mesh Removal by Dr. Raz after 9 years of Hell. I have learned so much from Jane and some of the others.

    So glad you got mesh removed by Dr. Raz. I wish i would have seen Janes website, so I too, would have known hiw damaging a partial removal is! For everyone reading this, DO NOT get a partial removal. I am a million times worse as a result of partial removals!

    Melayna and Jane, thank you for caring! I have been pondering the apathy of most people. It’s a mystery to me why it is so difficult to get people interested or to care about mesh victims. Everyone is so busy….at work….at home…… Their lives are unaffected. For those of ys who are i jured and suffering fighting the mesh battle is all consuming. I wish more people cared.
