Worldwide Petition for Lilly to "fess up"

Patricia Royall, a plaintiff in one of the pending DES breast cancer lawsuits, attended the recent DES breast cancer trial in Boston. She became upset when she heard Eli Lilly's announcement after the settlement. Eli Lilly said, "While we continue to believe that Lilly's medication did not cause the conditions alleged in the lawsuit, we believe the settlement is in the best interests of the company."

Not content to sit back and do nothing, Patricia has headed up a worldwide petition demanding Eli Lilly's CEO to "fess up" about DES and aims for 5,000 signatures. This petition is fast gaining publicity and infiltrating cyber networks. The fact of Eli Lilly's lack of remorse and refusal to "fess up" whilst spending millions settling DES lawsuits is enough to make anyone chew nails and spit tacks. The groundswell of hostility and determination is evident among the DES community who have made comments on the petition website. Even celebrity stars are joining in to sign the petition!

To sign the petition, click on http://www.thepetitionsite.com/555/889/673/eli-lilly-fess-up-on-des/

The twitter hashtag #keepLillyhonest is also trending.

Patricia, pictured left,  hopes the petition, as well as sending the message to Eli Lilly that DES exposed people are not going away, will raise worldwide awareness of DES.

Hello to all my DES sisters and brothers in Australia. Thanks to all who have already signed the petition. We had some difficulties with people not being able to sign. The site is fixed and I encourage those of you who tried to sign and couldn't to go back to the site and resign. For those who haven't signed yet, I encourage you to do so. Together we can make an impact and our voices finally heard. Thank you again.
