One cancer is almost 100% preventable. And Chicago is making a move to eradicate it.

THURSDAY, Jan. 23, 2020 (The Chicago Tribune)—“It happens when you least expect it… It was my last semester before it was time for me to graduate. That’s when I found out.”

Morgan Park resident Angela Williams was 40 years old in 2015 when she received a diagnosis of cervical cancer following a routine gynecological checkup.

“There are so many emotions when you hear the word cancer the first time around,” she said. “It was like, ‘OK, we can give you a hysterectomy, and then you’ll be OK from there.’ I was upset, but I thought there are a lot of people who don’t make it. So take this surgery, and do what you got to do.”
