About Cervical Cancer Awareness Fundraiser
The Grant Bone and Joint Center O.R. staff would like everyone to come out to support one of our coworker’s who was diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 3 over a year ago. She's not doing too well, and we are hosting this event to help her out. Tickets are $10 and all proceeds will go directly to her. This is a great opportunity to get out for a night during the week and have a good time without stay out late. Cervical cancer is nearly 100 percent preventable, yet each year, about 15,000 women in the United States learn that they have cancer of the cervix. The occurrence of deaths from cervical cancer has declined significantly. The good news is that cervical cancer is preventable and curable if it is detected early. Cervical cancer rates are higher among older women; however, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (or CIN), the precursor lesion to cervical cancer, most often occurs among younger women. Therefore, screening younger women is an important strategy that can actually prevent cervical cancer from developing almost 100 percent of the time. Furthermore, when cervical cancer is detected at its earliest stage, the 5-year survival rate is more than 90 percent. If you are having issues please see your doctor right away!!!!This is something that is very important to all of us. So if you would like to come out and support the cause that would be great. Donations will also be accepted the night of the event. Feel free to invite anyone and everyone!!!THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!
