“Growing up, I had an Aunt that passed away due to Breast Cancer. I was very naive and didn’t understand the concept of cancer and how it could affect numerous lives every day. As time went on, I learned to appreciate having good health and having the privilege to be able to receive screenings and regular check ups.
Unfortunately, not everyone has the privilege and access to tests and screenings that could potentially save their lives. It wasn’t too long ago that cervical cancer was the #1 deadliest form of cancer for women. Thinking back to when my Aunt was first told she had Breast Cancer, she was too late. Learning from her experience, I strongly encourage all women to take care of themselves and to have regular Pap screenings.”
