April 12, 2102 ~ Beverly Martiniano has a good idea. Start a Lunch and Learn Meeting for Meshies group- advertise on Craigslist or Tweet– use social media on your local newspaper and television stations, Facebook for your local area, even an announcement in the paper. Get together with others and share information and support each other. I bet the numbers will grow when people hear about it.
I met today for lunch with 3 ladies all suffering from mesh implants. One has had a surgery, one has had 4 surgeries and one has had none. Being careful not to talk about particulars, it was so helpful to have the support of others that are experiencing the same things. We have decided to meet again May 16th at 11 am at MiMi’s Restarurant, at Desert Ridge Shopping Center, at Tatum Blvd and Hwy 101. We posted an announcement of the meeting on the local Craig’s list and on this facebook link. Just posted “Meshie’s meeting for support group, with place date and time. Can you post this on your Newsletter site also? Of course it is just Arizona women. But it is a start.
