Date:4/24/2008

Every Woman is Urged to Talk to Her Healthcare Provider about Ways to Help

Prevent Cervical Cancer

NEW YORK, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- One4One, a unique program focused on empowering women to help make a difference in the fight against cervical cancer, starts today during National Minority Cancer Awareness Week. One4One urges women to talk to their healthcare provider about ways they can help protect themselves from cervical cancer, while also raising money to increase cervical cancer information programs and other educational services, especially for those who may be at greater risk of developing the disease due to lack of access to information or healthcare.

Organizations participating in One4One are American Social Health Association, Black Women's Health Imperative, Lance Armstrong Foundation, Gynecologic Cancer Foundation, Native American Cancer Research, National Asian Women's Health Organization, National Cervical Cancer Coalition, National Latina Health Network and Tamika & Friends, Inc., with support from Merck & Co., Inc.

For each woman who pledges to talk to her healthcare provider about cervical cancer via http://www.One4OnePledge.org between April 24 and June 5, Merck will donate $5, up to $1 million total, to the participating One4One organizations. The funds raised will be used to provide cervical cancer information programs and other educational services for women across the United States, including women at greater risk of developing the disease due to lack of access to information or healthcare.

In the U.S. alone, an average of 10 women die each day from cervical cancer, and it was estimated that more than 11,000 women would be diagnosed in 2007. "The loss of any life to cervical cancer is one too many, because it is a disease that we can help to prevent," said Dr. Lisa Flowers, Assistant Professor of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Divisi
