I didn’t have any symptoms. I didn’t have any idea what was going on inside my body. But I am so glad I scheduled that appointment at Planned Parenthood.

After a routine screening, my Planned Parenthood provider found pre-cancerous cells on my cervix. I received quick and effective treatment that stopped those cells from turning into cervical cancer. If I hadn’t made that appointment, my story could be very different. Planned Parenthood saved my life.

I’m telling my story now because January is Cervical Health Awareness month and cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. Anyone with a cervix can get it, but the HPV vaccine and routine screenings—like the one I got at Planned Parenthood—can actually prevent cervical cancer. So make an appointment and keep yourself healthy. 

Wishing you well,

Anna
Grateful Planned Parenthood patient

P.S. Did you know that becoming a patient at Planned Parenthood helps strengthen its ability to provide care to others? Schedule your visit today. The appointment you make could save your life—and someone else’s.
