"Having cervical cancer does make others assume the worst about you. The fact that the average person who is HPV positive has only had 2.1 sexual partners shows this is can happen to anyone," said Shawna Dickey, a 33-year- old survivor of adenocarcinoma from Packwood, Iowa, who attended the conference. "The lack of awareness as to how many people have contracted HPV at some time in their life shows how little the public is informed. So many people have it and don't even realize they are carriers."

In the United States, cervical cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related death in women between 20 and 39 years old. More than 14,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and more than 3,900 women will die from this devastating disease. In developing nations, cervical cancer remains the number-one cause of cancer related deaths, with an estimated 493,000 cervical cancer cases being diagnosed each year, accounting for more than 85 percent of new diagnosis. Of those 493,000 cases, an estimated 273,500 women will die from this preventable disease.
