Review: All About Cervical Cancer

Cancer Websites, Cervical Cancer — By on June 8, 2009 at 11:20 am

An average of 30 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer each day. January is National Cervical Cancer Awareness month and it’s the perfect time to help spread the word about the disease.

Join Liz Lange, fashion designer and cervical cancer survivor, to raise awareness about what women can do to help protect themselves and their loved ones.

Liz Lange is the founder and president of Liz Lange Maternity. She is a fashion and retail pioneer and a cervical cancer survivor. Liz was diagnosed with cervical cancer after her annual trip to her gynecologist in the summer of 2001 at age 35.

After undergoing a biopsy, the doctor found that she had dysplasia, or abnormal cell tissue, on her cervix. They removed all the abnormal tissue, but told her it was standard procedure to run additional tests. A week later she was told she had cervical cancer.

Liz underwent a hysterectomy and other treatments to successfully fight the diagnosis. She couldn’t bear the pain of discussing the disease at that time, and stayed silent on the subject until recently.

As a cervical cancer survivor, Liz Lange believes is important that she do all she can to help educate women about how to help protect themselves from the disease. She is speaking out in hopes of helping all women understand the facts about human papillomavirus (HPV) and the diseases it causes. Hopefully doing this will help minimize the number of women who have to hear the same diagnosis that she did.

The Gynecologic Cancer Foundation is pleased to partner with Liz Lange to help more women get the facts about cervical cancer and HPV. They are committed to supporting a variety of educational programs to help women take charge of their health and protect themselves, their daughters and their sisters from cervical disease and cervical cancer.
