This is the story of Michele Baldwin, a 45-year-old mother of three who was diagnosed with late-stage cervical cancer. When she found out she didn’t have much time left, her goal was to spread awareness about this terrible disease and try to save the life of others.
She traveled all the way to India, the country with the highest mortality rate from cervical cancer in the world, and reached out to women in remote areas. Her mission was to educate women about cervical cancer and the sexually transmitted virus HPV that causes it. She wanted to make a difference so others don’t have to experience what she’s went through.
80% of all people under 50 years of age will be exposed to HPV at some point in their lives. It can cause many types of cancers in both men and women.
By sharing this video, we hope to raise awareness about HPV and to inspire others to help educate and possibly save lives. Her story is heartbreaking, but it has the power to make a big change worldwide.
