Twinsie Tuesday:Cervical Cancer Awareness

Hello! This weeks theme is a very important one.  We are bringing awareness to cervical cancer.  As a woman who has had to deal with cervical issues, it's very important to me to share this information.  A few years ago I had an abnormal test result.  I was terrified.  My doctor decided to watch the issue very carefully for the next few months.  Things were not progressing as he would like so he performed a biopsy and then more monitoring.  After that, he decided it was time we do something.  I had a procedure to remove the abnormal cells.  When the biopsy results came back, the cells showed to be headed in the direction of Cervical Cancer. He explained to me that there were levels of tissue of the abnormal cells.  My abnormal cells were one level away from being considered cancer.   If I had not gone to the doctor, or chosen to ignore the abnormal results, things would be very different for me.  I am so grateful to my doctor.  I encourage every woman to go to your annual visit every year.  I have been free and clear ever since.  So here is my manicure to show my support for Cervical Cancer Awareness! I used a basic white on my ring finger and Sinful Colors Why Not on the rest.  I stamped using bundle monster plate 321 and then added some glitter as accents on each nail.


Here is some more information about Cervical Cancer.


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.
