My mother has always been front and center in my life. I always say she is the reason I became a nurse. She is also the reason I was able to get my nursing degree at 22 years of age. She modeled what passion, love, and care looks like! She also helped emphasize the importance of health and preventative exams, such as the Pap test, for young women. A recent guideline is threatening to end access to the Pap test for women under 25!. We need to raise awareness to this issue to ensure that all women at least 21 years of age are able to have access to routine exams such as the Pap test so we can all accomplish big goals in our twenties!
