My great grandmother died of cervical cancer when I was 14 years old. Growing up, I remember having conversations with my mom, my aunties, and my grandmother about the importance of women’s health and that we should get examined. After I was diagnosed with HPV, I learned that black women are the second most likely demographic to develop cervical cancer. My health is very important to me and I do all of my gynecological exams. Women in their 20’s must get their Pap tests because cervical cancer affects young women too.
