Thank you so much for sharing your story! What an inspiration you are. My mother died of cervical cancer last year. It's been a hard year, but I am happy that the HPV vaccine is out there, and that my daughter (who is 2 now), will have a fighting chance against this disease. My mother never had that. I also wanted to share a resource, http://onlineceucredit.com/edu/social-work-ceus-can - it's a great site for anyone struggling with the emotional ramifications that come along with cancer. I'll be visiting this blog often! Keep up the amazing posts.

Cervical cancer is most common in India. But sadly there is little awareness. Women find it suspicious when they are told to have periodic pap smears. Forget periodic they dont bother to get themselves checked even once during their entire reproductive life. And few who feel like doing, are prevented/discouraged by their husbands & family members. Cant imagine how much they really suffer before they eventually get diagnosed at a much advanced stage.
