The Susan Jolley Awareness Program brings awareness to the prevention and the impact of cervical cancer and other gynecological cancers that affects women. Cervical cancer begins in the cervix, the narrow organ at the bottom of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers in women worldwide.
A well-proven way to prevent cervix cancer is to have testing (screening) to find pre-cancers before they can turn into invasive cancer. The Pap test (or Pap smear) and the HPV (human papillomavirus) test are used for this. If a pre-cancer is found, it can be treated, stopping cervical cancer before it really starts.

In the United States and other countries where cervical cancer screening is routine, this cancer is not so common. The program also includes the Pencil Me In Initiative which encourages women to make themselves a priority. Often times, women wear many hats and put their goals, dreams and health on the back burner. The PMI is to show women that we are important too. We are also advocating to expand Medicaid across the United States. Expanding medicaid will allow regular health screenings and preventative care. Join me because "Cancer can't Win"
