Alexis hails from New York City, and like many New Yorkers, she has no interest in keeping her voice down when it comes to an important issue. In this case, that’s continued access to the Pap test, which saves the lives of thousands of women every year.
“Women’s health is something that doesn’t get talked about enough, but this needs to change. Pap tests can be lifesaving for women to find precancerous and cancerous cells. Before screening existed, cervical cancer was the #1 cancer-related killer among women. It has since dropped to #14.
New proposed changes to the guidelines could eliminate this and leave women vulnerable to incomplete testing.
…Let’s use our voices when it comes to what happens to our bodies.”
