Dr Reed was born in my town and through her advocacy saved lives of women by fighting against the use of  morcellators for laparoscopic uterine removals. May she rest in peace.

Thank you so much for posting this. I have read much about Dr. Reed's campaign and how she was treated by her own medical community after raising her voice. I was hoping she woud make it. I am so sorry she did not.

Her story, and her and her husband's campaign revealed and raised more than one issue related to healthcare for women with gynecological problems.  Will be praying for her children and husband.-j

Thank you for posting this, CheeseQueen.

If Dr. Reed had not spoken up I hate to think how it still would have been going on and how many of us could be in worse circumstance.  

You are right, Drienne, prayers for her husband and children.

I just read about her in a NYT piece. Just heartbreaking.

Thanks for the link... I just tried it but got a message that it is over 24 hours old and I would need to subscribe to read it... I'm going to do a search and see if there is another article that is free. I'm sure there will be.

Thanks for the link. It worked. We lost a wonderful person. Cry

It takes guts to go against the masses when you know you are right. Good lesson for all of us to stand up.

Love and Hugs,

Cindi

Thank you, Kim.  Great article everyone should read.  I am going to attach the link so everyone can just click on it and it opens in a new window - hope you don't mind.  It is very sad to see how they were treated by other "professionals".

What a courageous couple!!  Thank you all for your thoughts and the share of this article.  May God be close to her husband and family and I pray we one day have treatments that don't do more harm than good.
