Our prayers are with you and your daughter. Today surgery cures so many.

If I may say, all women should get regular PAP smears. Since the introduction of the technique the rate of cervical cancer has plummeted since the early changes are caught early in the dysplasia (pre-cancer changes) to cancer sequence.

The new vaccine sounds very promising. It immunizes against the most common forms of virus that cause the cancer (yep, cervical cancer is caused by a virus). The idea of vaccinating young women may prevent many of these cancers in the future.

Sorry for the aside, but I really believe that this is one form of cancer that can be detected in many cases very early.

Maybe you are too young to remember the Naval Chaplain who in the midst of a terrible battle hollered out - "Pray and pass the amunition!" Still holds true. It seems about 2000 years ago a wise individual was asked that same question - the answer, "The rain falls on the just and the unjust alike." That is the best we have.

So we will pray with you and prayers must be given with full faith that they will be granted, as long as we do not tempt the Lord our God.

Seems like we have run into a horrible wall. My niece doesn't have insurance, so, noone will take her. I can't believe this. Is she suppose to lay down and die?
My sister is ready to use all of her paid off credit cards worth hundreds of thousands of credit and will put a mortgage on her house for a loan, but, noone will do it that way. They only want insurance. Are people so money hungry that they would rather drain an insurance company for frivolous things than that get cash for help to stay alive?

I'm sorry, thank you all for your prayers!! It means the world to me.

Omigosh, texasgirl. In the words of another member, "That vacuums."

How bizarre. I can't imagine a provider refusing cold, hard cash. There's something terribly wrong with this picture. There's got to be a piece of the puzzle missing.

Sending Prayers.Also a good thing to remember as a young girl I would get many tests saying there was a problem possibly pre cancerous a nurse finally told me to take folic acid I dont remember how much but after that I never had a problem again.So far Im 50 years old now and have not taken it for a long time.I dont know what the folic acid does but it does help younger women get a better test for some reason.
