Team Cervivor has a lot to be thankful for this year! From an amazing Cervical Cancer Awareness Month in January to our Founder and Chief Visionary finding out she was becoming a mother through an exceptional gift to representing Cervivor at the World Cancer Congress in Switzerland to the opening remarks at the White House for the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Roundtables launch. There is too much to count.
Where our community continues to grow quickly, we’ve been able to spread our collective wings and soar higher toward our mission of ending cervical cancer -all while supporting the members of this amazing community. This season represents togetherness and gratitude and we want to share what’s in our hearts and how you have been the center of our thankfulness.

It’s what makes our community extra special.” – Tamika Felder, Cervivor Founder & Chief Visionary
