Our guest today, Tamika Felder, is practically the definition of a Cancering community. When she was diagnosed with cervical cancer at age 25, she didn't feel like she had found a community of survivors who could help walk her through what was ahead of her. So, she CREATED her own community, Cervivor, a nonprofit organization that brings cervical cancer survivors together and helps to spread awareness, education, and support.
On this episode, Dr. JYP and Tamika will be talking about the
origins and mission of Cervivor, and also the terrible stigma that
women who have reproductive cancers face in our culture. Plus,
Tamika will discuss her role in a very important documentary about
cervical cancer, HPV, and GYN cancer prevention.

Thanks again for listening, and let's all eat better, be
healthier, be happier, and remember, Cancering affects us all.
