I am so excited to be a part of Cervical Cancer Day On The Hill. This event is important for so many reasons.
First, Cervical Cancer is a deadly disease that takes too many lives. But, you aren't hearing about it. As many of you know that's one of the main reasons I started this blog and talk about my battle with anyone who will listen. Far too many people are simply uneducated about cervical cancer. People think its, "no big deal" or dont understand how easy it is to contract the deadly virus HPV that leads to cervical cancer. They aren't aware that cervical cancer treatments are horrendous and leave fighters with side effects sometimes to horrific to mention. And most importantly people don't realize that cervical cancer kills, It kills young and old women of all ethnicity's in all corners of the world.
Secondly, I am thrilled to meet so many wonderful men and woman who are passionate about raising cervical cancer awareness. There will be survivors, supporters and advocates all gathering for the same purpose and I will be a part of that.
Thirdly, we will all have an opportunity to share with our representatives the importance of cervical cancer. We will advocate for increased federal funding for cervical cancer prevention, detection and treatment.
I will take pictures and notes so that I can share my experience with all of you!
