Chapter Leader: Lori Stone
Chapter Leader since March 2010
The Seattle, WA chapter exists to educate our local community about HPV and to support local women and men facing a diagnosis of HPV infection and HPV cancers. Our peer support network brings together patients, caregivers, survivors, and medical practitioners to offer support and guidance while engaging the community and sharing health resources.
Join us in the Pacific Northwest for the "We Care" cervical cancer and HPV awareness campaign. Our mission is simple: improve HPV cancer awareness, information, and support for patients, survivors, caregivers, and the medical community in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Contact us.
Check back soon for more new on upcoming events.
