About Us

Robyn Towt is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in 2017, had a double mastectomy and reconstruction with Mentor Silicone breast implants which caused an array of debilitating health issues. Robyn had explant surgery after just four months of having implants and her symptoms completely resolved. This experience led her to become an advocate for raising awareness about breast implant safety.

Terri Diaz is a harmed patient/breast implant illness survivor. What ultimately prompted Terri to become involved in patient safety advocacy was the results of her own 10-year debilitating illness due to an adverse reaction to breast implants placed in 2006. At the time of implanting, Terri was not informed of the side effects that can be caused by breast implants. 

Robyn and Terri first met when they happened to be roommates while they were invited to speak at the FDA in September of 2018, the first meeting on the Safety of Breast Implants. They have been advocating and speaking out together ever since. 

We started to meet with our Global Advocates to implement changes and to share ideas... GPAC was born.
