What is "Letters to Annie?"

The "Letters to Annie" project seeks to help women choose safer birth control by raising awareness of the risks of YAZ, Yasmin, Beyaz, and other similar birth control pills, and serves as a tribute to the life of Annie Ammons, who died suddenly in her sleep.

We want to prevent tragedies like hers from happening again.
