  • Title: LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDER —
    Descriptive info: “Pelvic organ prolapse is not an American women’s health concern,.. it is a global women’s health pandemic.. ”.. ~Sherrie Palm.. LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDER.. September 8, 2010.. From the beginning of this journey, I knew I wanted to connect with women on a deeper level about the impact POP has on all of our lives.. Those of us who have already been diagnosed and treated for POP understand the distress women who are newly diagnosed are going through.. In the beginning it can be frustrating to dissect the information available; is the data we have access to accurate, which information applies to us personally, are treatments or surgery the best path.. It  ...   we will find the information that will assist our paths.. Together we will guide, support, and nurture.. Together we will shift the awareness curve by passing the information we gain on to the younger generation.. I have no doubt that with the strength and determination women bring to the table, we will change the mindset of the world at large regarding pelvic organ prolapse from a common female health concern that gets little acknowledgement to a widely recognized condition that is addressed in terms of prevention, early recognition for less aggressive treatment, and maintenance for continuing quality of life.. With your help, we can change the world.. My continuing gratitude to you all!..
