You wouldn’t expect to hear a woman describing any part of her battle with ovarian cancer as “…one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life.” But those are the words used by Deborah Giannecchini as she reflects on taking on consumer health care products giant Johnson & Johnson in court. Diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012 at age 59, Ms. G – as she is affectionately called by Beasley Allen lawyers and staff – was shocked to learn about the link between talcum powder used for feminine hygiene and the often deadly cancer. She was eager to speak out about her fight, hoping to be an advocate to raise awareness and prevent other women from sharing her fate. By going to trial, she says, “I felt like I was doing something maybe for the good of bringing information to women who needed to know about the effects of talcum powder and ovarian cancer.” Her trial team, she says, “helped me do that.”
