January marks Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign that raises for those affected by cervical cancer. In the U.S., American Indian women are 2 times more likely to develop cervical cancer than white women. Nationwide, the cervical cancer death rate dropped significantly with the increased use of the Pap test. This month we ask that you join us in raising awareness for all women who may be touched by cervical cancer.
How to get involved:
- Wear turquoise to honor cervical cancer survivors. Share your photo with us and tell us why cervical cancer awareness is important to you.
- Contact your local healthcare provider to see if you are due for a cervical cancer screening.
- Find out when you should be screened: https://www.cancer.org/health-care-professionals/american-cancer-society-prevention-early-detection-guidelines/cervical-cancer-screening-guidelines.html
