Palm's 1st edition of Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic was published in 2009. As patients began reaching out, Sherrie recognized the need to establish additional support for women navigating this common, cryptic condition, and founded the Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support (APOPS) in 2010. The 2nd edition of Sherrie's book was published in 2012. POP awareness and dialogue continues to expand and evolve, and globally women are uniting and becoming more vocal about pelvic organ prolapse, sharing support and guidance in APOPS Support Forum.
