Bridgette was diagnosed with HPV-related cervical cancer

When I was diagnosed with HPV-related cervical cancer, I was in complete shock. According to the CDC, the average age of diagnosis is 49 years. Though I knew HPV (human papillomavirus) could be linked to certain cancers, I didn't think it would happen to me.

As a registered nurse, I’ve always prioritized taking care of my patients, but I never stopped to think about my own health. Any cancer diagnosis is devastating and as a mom of two young kids, I struggled with being sick. Since my diagnosis, I’ve learned more about HPV-related cervical cancer and want to help raise awareness. I don’t want other families to go through what ours did.
