Approximately 10,800 new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although cervical cancer is highly treatable when caught early, many low-income women lack access to the screenings necessary for early detection. Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI) provides sexual- and reproductive-health-care, education, and advocacy for more than 70,000 women in 27 health centers across the state annually.
The medical professionals at PPWI aim to prevent or quickly detect signs of cervical cancer by emphasizing regular screenings. Simple Pap tests search for problems, and the health centers can also perform colposcopies to further investigate and remove potentially problematic cells. By removing precancerous cells from the cervix, medical professionals can often prevent harm before the cancer develops. PPWI does not turn away any patient seeking treatment, but the organization relies on outside donations to fund services for women who do not have insurance.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help improve women’s access to the early detection of cervical cancer with basic health screenings. If G-Team members raise $480, then Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin can fund Pap smears for eight uninsured women. Each additional $60 raised will fund a Pap smear for another woman.
