“Motherhood has made me take better care of myself. While I enjoy playing dress-up with Luna, I also wish that my mom could be here and join us. My mom passed away five years ago. In the final days of her life, we had conversations about staying on top of my health and the importance of regular checkups. We both agreed that taking the Pap test to screen for cervical cancer is the way to go. Now with an 8-month old in my arms, I never miss my Pap tests. I will have the same conversation with Luna when she grows up.”
