In 2010, 11,818 women in the United States were diagnosed with cervical cancer and I was one of them. 2 I thought I was “perfectly healthy” until I got cancer. But as it turns out, I wasn’t as educated about my own health as I am today. Life before and after a cancer diagnosis can be terrifying, and that is where people like Dee and Christina and their group #gyncsm can offer support and education. Please join us this Friday at 10am PST for this very special #patientchat all about Empowering Women in their Gynecologic Health. The chat is important for all women and their loved ones.

#gyncsm is a community for those impacted by gynecological cancers. They hold monthly tweet chats with topics like “Fertility and Sexuality” and “Parenting with Cancer“, plus their blog contains many great resources to help empower women in their gynecologic health.
Here are some questions to get you thinking:
How can women be more empowered to ensure gynecologic health? What do loved ones need to know/watch for?
Does every GYN cancer have a screening test?
There is some controversy about annual Pelvic exams. What is important for women to know?
At the end of our chat with Dee and Christina from #gyncsm, we will open up the discussion for all of our chatters to join in, ask questions, and offer insights.
