This year, more than 12,000 U.S. women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. And more than 4,210 will die.
Now, Take the Pearl Pledge and help protect yourself and other women from this preventable disease!
The Pearl of Wisdom Campaign to Prevent Cervical Cancer is a united, global effort to raise awareness of the opportunities now available to prevent cervical cancer. The campaign increases awareness of the new means of preventing cervical cancer, encourages women to take full advantage of these methods, and advocates for the implementation of these tools for girls and women everywhere.
The campaign promotes the Pearl of Wisdom as the global symbol for cervical cancer prevention. All profits from purchases of the Pearl of Wisdom go to the U.S. Pearl of Wisdom Campaign Fund to support cervical cancer prevention activities. The Pearl of Wisdom campaign was launched in the U.S. in 2009, where it is led by the national nonprofit organization, Tamika & Friends, Inc., and includes more than 20 national partner organizations. The campaign is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from QIAGEN, Inc. For more information, visit www.PearlofWisdom.us.
