Dear Friend,

In 2010, Women's Oncology Research & Dialogue (WORD) set out to create an effective Human Pampilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical cancer women's health education campaign.   In short we wanted to make sure all girls and women could make informed health decisions about the HPV vaccine, annual exams, pap tests and the HPV test. Through a series of excellent partners including Purdue University, David Bossert of Madison Beach Productions, Duck Studios and Publicis Group, WORD was able to create a comprehensive health campaign.  

In 2011, we need individual and corporate support to help us meet an extremely ambitious but necessary goal: distribute this life-saving information to 15 states and 30 cities.   Together we can lessen the occurences of cervical cancer, increase survivorship and decrease suffering caused by HPV-related cancer - specifically cervical cancer.  As you read the words below, WATCH the videos, see the posters and brochures - -  PLEASE CONSIDER how you or your organization can be involved in ending cervical cancer.  Together we can make a difference. 

After you complete reading/watching this informational material - Please contact us on how you or your organization can donate and/or sponsor this campaign. Please contact us at 

For a Healthier 2011,
