Christy's Story

A Planned Parenthood doctor caught Christy’s cervical cancer and saved her life. "Without a resource like Planned Parenthood, I probably wouldn’t be alive. I wouldn’t have known about my cancer, until it was too late. They caught it early. And the way it advanced after we knew about it, proves to me, that I was so very lucky." This is Christy's story of care. She lives in Hartford, Wisconsin.

We went to Planned Parenthood. I would go in, get my birth control, and have my yearly pap smears. And that was the only health care I got. I was healthy, I was young. When I was 24, the pap smear that year came back abnormal. I didn’t go to Planned Parenthood to make a political statement. I went to see my doctor. I went to see the only doctor I had at the time. And that doctor saved my life.more
