A DES Daughter Fights Back
Jackie White, DES Daughter and breast cancer survivor

Jackie White was in her early teens when her mother sat her down for an important talk—more serious than the one girls typically get at that age. She explained that Jackie was a “DES daughter”: When her mom was pregnant with her, she had taken a medication called diethylstilbestrol DES to “prevent miscarriage”. That day, she told Jackie evidence had surfaced that both the women who took DES as well as their daughters could be at much higher risk for gynecological cancers and fertility problems.
