I just saw this photo on Facebook and it really caught my eye, women taking photos of their Camel Toe with their tight leggings. This is their way to promote Cervical Cancer Awareness to everyone. I see it as very informative but I know a lot people will criticize since you will take photo of your Camel Toe.

This photo is not mine.

Just to give you more information about Cervical Cancer, I have research about it, so I check the ever reliable Wikipedia.
Cervical cancer is a cancer arising from the cervix. It is due to the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Early on there are typically no symptoms.

Symptoms may include:
– abnormal vaginal bleeding
pelvic pain
– pain during sexual intercourse

What are the risk factors?

  1. smoking
  2. a weak immune system
  3. birth control pills
  4. starting sex at a young age
  5. having many sexual partners

** As per Wikipedia this risk factors are less important.

Information’s from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cervical_cancer

Reading all the symptoms I find it all pertinent to me and the risk factors I check numbers 2, 3 and 4. I was diagnosed with Bone Cancer last year and they told me that Bone Cancer is either primary or secondary. Primary bone cancer is started at the bone itself and the secondary is started somewhere else. We cannot do surgery since my tumor is near the spine, it will affect my motor skills or worst I really cannot walk anymore. So I decided not to take it off. I love my family more than myself; I wanted to accompany my kids at school and to run with them so that is a very tough decision for me. The doctors just perform Radiation Therapy and also we do Rehab Therapy for my slipped disk and my arthritis (I know you won’t believe it, and by the way I am only 26 years old). I finished all my therapies just early this year and I promise myself to never go back to the doctor again. It cost us a lot of money and we are not affluent. I know I will survive this “gift” from God, since I know he’s always on my side and my priority is for my kids to have a good life and to send them to a good school. I was really hesitant to post this on my blog since I don’t want others to pity me but I did it because I want to promote awareness that cancer can strike at anybody at any age. By the way, I was checked this year by my OB-gyne about the symptoms I have and it was ruled out as Chronic Cervicitis, I think I got it from my radiation therapy. But after taking meds and doing the entire necessary lab test. I am still bleeding every time I got exhausted and tired and all the symptoms are still present and I think I have Cervical Cancer since my Oncologist ruled out that I got my Bone Cancer from an existing condition.

You may think that I am so naïve about not consulting a doctor, but I think that God is always by my side to protect me from harm and I am giving myself to him and let him decide about my fate. I really just want to enjoy the time with my Chinito Boy and my kids. I don’t want them to suffer the way they suffer when I was first diagnosed with cancer. I think I’ll be better with God’s grace and with my faith. I recommend to all mommies and ladies out there who is sexually active to go to their OB-gyne to do pap-smear at least every six (6) months and be vaccinated with anti-cervical cancer vaccine. Would you do the Camel toe photo awareness?
