cover finalNCCC is pleased to offer a free ebook of essays from cervical cancer survivors and family members, providing personal perspectives on the physical and emotional impact of cervical cancer. HPV & Cervical Cancer: Stories from Survivors and Supporters is available free in a variety of formats.

A PDF version is available here, as well as a flipbook version. Additional formats compatible with most ebook readers (epub, mobi), including the Kindle, are available free through Smashwords. The ebook is also availale (at the lowest required price through) Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

This collection offers a powerful message to those dealing with the impact of cervical cancer—you are not alone. We are grateful to the survivors and family members who have chosen to share their stories of pain, struggle, strength, and hope. We hope you will find inspiration in the stories here and will share the message of prevention.


While this section focuses in on cervical cancer survivors, there will also be comments from women that are battling persistent HPV precancerous lesions and cancer survivors' family members and friends too. As Mrs. Randi Kaye, the co-founder of the NCCC stated; "No one person is a statistic." Each person has their own personal battle. Each of us can focus in on HOPE and define HOPE within the context of our unique experiences.

The women in this section are the true heroes in the cervical cancer battle.
