Protect Girls from Cervical Cancer
Protect three girls from the threat of developing cervical cancer later in life.
Cervical cancer is the second most common form of cancer among women, with nearly half a million new cases diagnosed annually. While routine screenings have greatly reduced mortality rates among women in the United States, cervical cancer is still a common and deadly disease in many developing nations where regular screenings aren't a reality. Over 270,000 people die from cervical cancer every year and more than 80% of those deaths occur in developing countries.
The immunization for human papillomavirus, a leading cause of cervical cancer, is an effective method of prevention across the globe. The HPV vaccine vastly diminishes the risk of cervical cancer and has the potential to save countless lives. Unfortunately, those who are most in need often have the hardest time getting immunized, either because it is cost-prohibitive or unavailable.
You can help. This Gift That Gives More™ protects three girls from cervical cancer with immunizations through Partners in Health.
Partners In Health (PIH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. Through service, training, advocacy, and research, and by establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations, PIH strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.
