A story that involves not just one woman and her battle against disease, but her support system of family, friends and healthcare providers that fights alongside her.

Overview

This year in the United States, more than 12,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. That’s an average of more than 32 women every day. Behind each of these women is a story.
A story that involves not just one woman and her battle against disease, but her support system of family, friends and healthcare providers that fights alongside her.

This collection of stories from cervical cancer survivors and family members offers a powerful message to those dealing with the impact of cervical cancer—you are not alone.

From both stories of tragedy to the words of survivors come messages of hope—cervical cancer can be prevented. We can and should do more to raise awareness about ways to prevent cervical cancer so that no woman—no daughter, sister, mother, wife, friend—will die from this preventable disease.

We are grateful to the survivors and family members who have chosen to share their stories of pain, struggle, strength, and hope. We hope you will find inspiration in the stories here and will share the message of prevention.
