“As y’all know, I recently turned 22! There’s so much I want to achieve this year creatively, mentally, and physically! In order to achieve my goals I have to stay healthy. Pap tests have helped countless women detect and treat cervical cancer early on. A recent guideline is threatening to reduce access to the Pap for women under 25. This is terrifying. I’m just starting to make my mark on the world! Without the Pap screening, my health could be in danger. We can’t let that happen. January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month! It’s the perfect time to demand access to the test and raise awareness about all the lives the Pap screening can save. All young women deserve to be 25 and alive! #25AndAlive”
