Samantha Dallefeld, MD, is a leading pediatric critical care doctor in Austin, Texas, and she’s also an advocate for the Pap test, which saved her own life.

She shares a pre-op selfie at Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas:

“5am tired, makeup-less, a little anxious, smiling anyway pre-op photo.

The truth is that I really do feel great physically – NO SYMPTOMS – because remember all this was found starting with a ROUTINE Pap smear. Meaning – GET YOUR ROUTINE PAP SMEARS!!!!”
