Cervical Cancer Screening and Survivor Stories
Women from across the country have shared their personal screening and survivor stories. Their first-hand accounts offer important lessons for other women.
“Appointments can change your life. If you have questions, it’s very important to ask them so you can take control of your health.”
“My message to women is that we put ourselves to the side most of the time, and we need to adopt a mindset that ensures that we are making ourselves a priority.”
“I choose to see the blessings in the experience of having cancer. I learned to listen to my body and advocate for myself.”
“I had the chance to prevent my cancer. Please don’t miss your chance. Vaccinate yourself and your children.”
