Réaliser des photographies qui permettraient de partager votre histoire
Les filles DES, appel à témoignages

Touchée par l’histoire des filles DES j’ai cherché à apporter mon soutien à ces femmes. J’ai donc décidé avec l’appui de l’association DES de France, de réaliser un reportage photo. Et c’est pour ça que j’ai besoin de vous. Accepteriez-vous de me raconter votre histoire afin de la mettre en images ?

C’est l’occasion de donner de nombreux visages à ce drame sanitaire et de montrer son ampleur. J’aimerais par ces images témoigner des difficultés de donner la vie, le suivi médical qu’engendre le distilbéne ainsi que les maladies qu’il provoque. Ce travail photographique se fera dans le plus grand respect de votre histoire, dans le but de communiquer et de sensibiliser le public à ce problème. Le but étant de réaliser des photographies qui permettraient de partager votre histoire. ”   Contact – Site webFacebook – Charlotte Fallon

40 years of Breast Cancer research

Hundreds of scientific articles are published each year about risk factors for breast cancer and about prevention of the disease. However, the most basic questions about what we really know get very little attention. How much of the occurrence of breast cancer can be explained by our current knowledge?
