Above the Fog

A Life Journey with DES

above-the-fogAbove the Fog is a powerful story of one women’s struggle with DES (diethylstilbestrol).

The drug was developed in 1937 as the first synthetic estrogen. Millions of pregnant women who had previous miscarriages or premature births were given this drug in hopes of correcting the problem with their pregnancies.

Years later the tragic results started showing up in the daughters and later on in the sons – but the FDA did not contraindicated this drug until 1971 to all pregnant women.

This story is about one women, who never gave up in the face of her repeated health issues caused by DES or her family’s extraordinary health problems. She was determined to face the hard times with dignity and grace.
