Lalita from Houston is a young woman and a mom with her eye on maintaining a long and healthy life, and that includes recognizing the life saving value of regular Pap screenings.
“Before introduction of Pap screenings, cervical cancer was the deadliest form of cancer for women, but with the use of screening tests like the Pap, the number has gone down to 14th deadliest. That’s a huge difference and has helped save many lives! The Pap test has been leading the fight against cervical cancer for decades.
But now with proposed changes to the guidelines, the Pap test could be eliminated, leaving women vulnerable to incomplete testing.
Our health matters and I believe we should have a say in the guidelines that affect our well-being. We need to be our own advocate and make our voices heard.”
