It’s high time we held cervical cancer responsible for its actions. The best way to do that? Get the HPV vaccine and a simple Pap smear with HPV testing when indicated every few years. Having routine screenings means potentially catching cervical cancer at its most treatable stages—or even avoiding it altogether. Get informed below. Then, join the movement to cancel cervical cancer by booking your HPV vaccine or Pap appointment and using #CancelCervicalCancer to spread the word.

It’s time cervical cancer is held responsible for its actions.

Let’s create a movement. Teal is the official color of cervical cancer awareness. Post an image of your hand with a teal heart painted on (with a marker or added onto your photo) over your Pap-able area with a reason why cervical cancer must be canceled in the caption. Tag @ppgreatertx and use hashtag #CancelCervicalCancer to spread the word!
