“It is important for women to be able to advocate for themselves by getting a potentially life-saving Pap test, regardless of factors such as income. I am 22 years old, and I know that taking care of my BODY at a young age is very important to maintaining my overall health & strength. My own personal experience with health problems came in the form of being diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. I know firsthand the importance of getting screenings done to help find potential health issues before they become a problem. My expectations for my 20s are to live a healthy & adventurous life, but also making sure I get my annual Pap test done to ensure that I’m healthy. All young women deserve to be 25 and alive!”
