POSTED APRIL 9, 2018: Without financial support, site goes down on April 26, 2018. I can't do this alone... have not had even one gift of support since February. I am homeless and on the streets, I have NO MONEY for this. I really need some help to keep this six years of work online, PLEASE.
THIS WORK FOR SAFE HEALTHCARE PRODUCTS IS BEING DONE BY A 50 YEAR OLD HOMELESS WOMAN, homeless and on the streets since 2011 after loss of my management job and subsequent foreclosure on my house. I grew up in foster care so I have no family and no friends in a position to help me. I REQUIRE ENOUGH MONEY FOR ONLY THREE THINGS:
1. Cell phone with internet access. I cannot load files TO the web site from public service connections. This block is required to prevent hackers from using public access connections. I cannot write content and load it to the site until my phone is back on. Phone was shut down on the fourth because I have NO MONEY and almost NO SUPPORT FOR THIS WORK.
2. 4 foot by 4 foot storage unit to keep computer, periferals, back-ups and what pathetic little I have left of my life, destroyed by my ex, long story. Storage was locked up by managment on the 9th due to non-payment because I have NO MONEY and almost NO SUPPORT FOR THIS WORK. I have been wearing the same filthy stinking clothes for 10 days now because I have NOTHING LEFT BUT THE CLOTHES ON MY BACK AND A BAG WITH LAPTOP AND SOME TOILETRIES. The bag will likely get stolen in the near-distant future because I have to sleep sometimes and can't keep watch on the bag when I'm sleeping. Already had FIVE laptops stolen because I have to sleep. It was why I got the storage unit in the first place.
3. SERVER FEES TO KEEP ALL THIS WORK ONLINE. Obviously, no server space, no site, total end of this effort. I have NO MONEY to pay the server fees that are due on the 26th.
Must have to continue: $250
Gifts of support sent
as of 4 PM April 19, 2018: $0
NOT ONE PENNEY SINCE FEBRUARY. I stretched the money from January and February to cover January, February and March. I have less than $2 left.
Of the 2 million page views this site has received, over 6,000 were from Johnson & Johnson servers. I'm sure they are celabrating my failure to obtaion financial support and look forward to the site going down on the 26th. Crossing their fingers that no one chooses to help.
I'm sorry I have no money to pay for the tools REQUIRED to continue this work. I wish I did, I hate the thought of all this work going offline after 6 YEARS of a massive amount of work, 100 hour weeks. But if there's no support, I guess people are okay with the way Johnson & Johnson does business and all this work will be gone in less than a week. I did what I could...
In March of 2014 Johnson & Johnson announced sale of K-Y to European Reckitt Benckiser for undisclosed amount - a loss of $100 m in annual sales. In April of 2014 Johnson & Johnson announced sale of Ortho Diagnostics to Carlyle for $4 billion - a loss of $2 B in annual sales.

In March of 2014 Johnson & Johnson announced sale of K-Y to European Reckitt Benckiser for undisclosed amount - a loss of $100 m in annual sales as reported by Forbes. In April of 2014 Johnson & Johnson announced sale of Ortho Diagnostics to Carlyle for $4 billion - a loss of $2 B in annual sales as reported by Linda A. Johnson, AP Business Writer. Will selling off subsidiaries offset the global deluge of vaginal mesh lawsuits?
Based on a low rough estimate of $1 million each plus court costs. Each case against J&J should cost roughly $1.5 million. There are currently, and this is very low as the numbers rise quite quickly:
400 in Scotland, estimate at $1.5 million each totals $600 million
60,000 women in Israel, cost already of $1.8 billion settlement
400 in Canada, estimate at $1.5 million each totals $600 million
11,376 in United States, estimate at $1.5 million each totals over $17 BILLION!
The extremely low estimate from the countries currently with lawsuits against J&J for their known defective mesh product is already expected to be more than $20 BILLION. Wow! Nope, the liquidation of Ortho for $4 billion is only a portion of what is needed to cover the cost of more than 100,000 victims of Johnson & Johnson Ethicon known harmful vaginal mesh.
Johnson & Johnson better sell off a lot more to be able to afford the costs associated with vaginal mesh lawsuits. And they still have global metal-on-metal hip lawsuits around the world to pay off, I mean settle. Annnnd they still have the mess with Risperdal and stealing from Omnicare. Who was the corrupt leader at the head of all of these unethical decisions that injured hundreds of thousands of people and cost the company billions? Oh, Johnson & Johnson's current CEO, Alex Gorsky. Maybe it's time to request Alex Gorsky's resignation.
