BENEFITING: Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc.
At 21 years old I had no health insurance and the knowledge that I needed to take care of my health and well-being. Where is a girl to go when she can't afford a gyno on her meager salary from Bath and Body Works? Planned Parenthood.
On my first check up I was diagnosed with HPV - the virus that can lead to cervical cancer. My doctor was amazing, she educated me on the virus and the treatment that probably saved my life.
Whatever your political position, it's vital that young men and women have access to the type of care that saved my life.
In honor of my 30th birthday - the birthday I may have never seen if it wasn't for that free check up - help me raise $30,000. #30kfor30years
I'm in the midst of planning a fundraising event in December. Check back for more details...think pink carpet, concert, silent auction.
