Mary Ann Cahill, a wonderful woman who helped to found LLL International, died several days ago. :(

Nearly 60 ago, wow! What amazing, inspiring women and what a legacy they have given us all.
I've never really understood why Mary Paton & Co decided not to be part of LLL - I know they were inspired by LLL, and used many of their techniques and resources, so why keep the organisations separate? AFAIK Australia is the only country to have a completely independent peer-based breastfeeding support organisation.

I'm not sure either - I think there's a book recording ABA history, perhaps there's something mentioned in it? I'm curious too.
