January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

The American Cancer Society's estimates for cervical cancer in the United States are for 2013:
◾ About 12,340 new cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed.
◾ About 4,030 women will die from cervical cancer.

I never thought I would be one to have cervical cancer, I never thought I would have to fight to survive. Now is the time to take action and schedule your exam. I could list all the things you go through after cancer - the damage that the radiation does to your body the stenosis - the long term effects of chemo. So yes, take time today! Hugs
