Twinsie Tuesday Cervical Cancer Awareness MonthTuesday, January 22, 2013
Good morning dear readers!!
Today is Twinsie Tuesday, and for this weeks' theme we made teal and white manicures, for cervical cancer awareness month.
As the month of January brings cervical cancer into focus, it’s time to increase public understanding of the disease, including its prevalence, approaches to screening and prevention, treatment options, and resources that offer updated cervical cancer information throughout the year.
Each year in the United States, more than 11,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and approximately 4,000 die of the disease. While certain types of the human papillomavirus (HPV) are linked to cervical cancer, vaccines such as Gardasil® and Cervarix™ are designed to prevent infection with high-risk types of HPV and have the potential to greatly reduce the occurrence of cervical cancer.
For more information on cervical cancer, its treatment, and support, please visit Cancer Connect by clicking here.
You can also find more information on cervical cancer at the Canadian Cancer Society web site.
