“I have lost people in my life because of cancer, people I loved with all my heart, and I have lost them because they didn’t have access to health screenings to help protect them! That is why I stand to protect the Pap Smear! I Stand to protect women’s rights to the health care they deserve! I understand the importance of protecting screening exams, I understand how that can save lives! So join me to help #ProtectThePap and save lives of women who otherwise wouldn’t be able to detect cervical cancer and fight it from early stages!”
When Pap is Personal
Emily doesn’t mince words when talking about the loved ones she’s lost because they didn’t have access to proper health care. She hopes that speaking out about her own experiences will help break down barriers to care for all, and of special importance to her is access to the Pap test for all women.
