As a mother to a baby girl, I take raising awareness for women’s health very seriously and know how important it is to make sure women know they have resources available regardless of social class and finances. Cervical cancer was once of the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, but thanks to Pap tests, it is now the 15th cancer-related killer, and the lives of thousands of women have been saved. This gives me hope for the women around me. I know life can get busy and we, especially us moms, seem to push ourselves to the side and make sure everyone else is taken care of first, but please make sure you are getting your regular testing done! The Affordable Care Act covers cancer screenings for almost all people, including Pap tests for those with a cervix, making this life-saving check up accessible no matter what! Do a little self care and get your tests done!
