On Mother's Day, Wear and Share a Pearl of Wisdom to Help Prevent Cervical Cancer

UPPER MARLBORO, Md., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Cervical cancer is preventable - if every woman knows about and benefits from the tools - the Pap test, HPV test and HPV vaccine - now available to protect them from this disease. That's the message that the Pearl of Wisdom(TM) Campaign to Prevent Cervical Cancer (www.PearlofWisdom.us) wants women to get - and share - in honor of Mother's Day on May 10. And the campaign urges women to help do this by wearing a Pearl of Wisdom, the global symbol for cervical cancer prevention.

The Pearl of Wisdom campaign will give away free Pearl of Wisdom pins to 500 randomly selected visitors who register at its website before April 27. More information is available at www.PearlofWisdom.us/MothersDay.

"More than 11,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with cervical cancer this year, and 4,000 women will die of this disease," said Tamika Felder, cervical cancer survivor and founder of the nonprofit organization, Tamika and Friends, the lead U.S. partner in the Pearl of Wisdom campaign. "No one, however, should suffer or die from cervical cancer because it is now almost completely preventable. In honor of all women on Mother's Day, we encourage women to wear a Pearl of Wisdom and help us get the word out that this cancer is beatable."

"We know that cervical cancer is caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV," said Susan Wysocki, RNC, NP, president and CEO of the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health, a partner in the Pearl of Wisdom campaign. "Now, almost all cervical cancers can be prevented through screening with the Pap test and HPV test, and with HPV vaccination."

According to Ms. Wysocki,
