Share Your Story

Many people are unaware that Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin provides quality, compassionate reproductive health care to thousands of Wisconsinites every year. Your story will help ensure that we will continue to be there for women, men, and young people who rely on our services - no matter what.

Lori's Story

"One day, I was having these horrible pains in my lower abdomen, and I called my doctor at Planned Parenthood. I found out I had tumors and cysts in my ovaries, and that it was a health emergency. They were able to save half an ovary, and that was enough, because I was able to have children." – Lori, PPWI patient

Christy's Story

"I wasn't sick. I had no symptoms that there was something wrong with me. If I hadn't been a patient of Planned Parenthood, I would not have known that I had cervical cancer until I was sick - and I probably would have died." – Christy, PPWI patient

Gina's Story

“As an underinsured college student, I went to a Planned Parenthood location near my hometown for a yearly exam and the test results came back that I had pre-cancerous cells in my cervix. If I wasn’t able to be seen by Planned Parenthood, or have that option available to me, it could’ve gone very badly. Planned Parenthood helped me to be a mother.” - Gina, PPWI patient

Courtney's Story

"Getting cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood is really important. I do have a family history. So my aunt had ovarian cancer. She is actually no longer with us, which makes it even more important to me to continue to get those check-ups." - Courntey, PPWI Patient

Sophie's Story

"Health should not be the last priority. People should not have to choose between - Can I do something that I want with my life, like going to college, or can I afford health care" - Sophie, PPWI Patient
