Michele spent a number of years working a job that didn’t offer her healthcare, and a local community wellness center was her only option for cervical cancer screenings, including the Pap test. Michele is celebrating the center’s caregivers for their compassionate flexibility during those challenging times, and she’s also speaking up about how all women deserve this same kind of access to the Pap no matter their employment situation.
“The healthcare workers at my local community healthcare center…helped me keep up with regular cervical cancer screenings which runs in my family.
By making it possible for me to receive routine Pap [tests], they may have very well saved my life.
Every woman deserves to go to sleep at night knowing she has access to Pap [tests] and all necessary reproductive health services regardless of her circumstances.”
