“I work in healthcare. I have always been an advocate for preventive care especially Pap [tests]. This is extremely helpful for detecting cervical cancer. I got my first Pap [test] when I was 23, and even though it was uncomfortable it was needed! We see too many women in health care not getting the care they need until they have symptoms. Cervical cancer is often asymptomatic until it reaches the later stages. Please get your Pap [tests] and let’s all fight this together.”
