New Hampshire First to Offer Free Cervical Cancer Vaccine
A new vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, the number 2 cause of cancer deaths in women, and other Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) diseases was approved by the FDA in June 2006. HPV, which is the main cause of cervical cancer, is also the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the United States. It is estimated that 6.2 million people will become infected each year in the United States and that over half of all sexually active men and women will become infected with HPV at some point in their life. Gardasil, the vaccine used to prevent cervical cancer from HPV, has reported excellent results in its studies. Hopefully this act by New Hampshire to offer the free vaccine to girls will convince the other states to do the same.

Thanks for your comment.
No, none of my family can help and i'm not religious so don't have a chuch or anything similar. I'm going to some kind of charity advice center tomorrow so I just have to wait and see what happens.
Its good news about the vaccine, lets hope it helps like they say it will. » AboutPaula
