I think this is a very good resources and wanted to share it with you. As I have mentioned time and again Cervical Cancer is a very serious disease. It is also a disease that most people know little about. But if you are reading my blog you are learning, as am I. Not only are you learning something that could save your life you are also arming yourself to help save others. You are not too afraid, embarrassed or closed minded to talk about HPV and Cervical Cancer.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources states "Cervical cancer is a disease that can be very serious. However, it is a disease that you can help prevent. Cervical cancer occurs when normal cells in the cervix change into cancer cells. This normally takes several years to happen, but it can also happen in a very short period of time. The good news is that there are ways to help prevent cervical cancer. By getting regular Pap tests and pelvic exams, your health care provider can find and treat the changing cells before they turn into cancer."
To read more about Cervical Cancer and find helpful phone numbers and websites please visit WOMENSHEALTH.GOV and be sure to book mark the site. You never know when someone will come to you asking for advice and/or help. This could be the resource that saves a persons life. I don't mean to sound dramatic but if someone had known enough to say to me, "Meaghan I think you may have Cervical Cancer" maybe things would have turned out differently. Even doctors didn't have the sense to alert me to Cervical Cancer. That means we have to arm ourselves and watch out for eachother!
As always thanks for being so supportive and inspiring me to keep learning and sharing what I find!
