I have not been on EmpowHER for some time because of significant side effects resulting from my treatment. I did notice that you subsequently did a video discussing anal cancer.
I am writing to let you know that my book, Any Mother's Daughter - One Woman's Lifelong Struggle with HPV has been endorsed by the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation in conjunction with The Society of Gynecologic Oncologists. A link for the book will be included in their new National Cervical Cancer Prevention Education Campaign.
I am very honored to have received these endorsements from two such prestigious organizations. It is so important to increase the publics awareness regarding HPV. The virus is now identified as being 99% responsible not only for cervical cancer, but as the cause in 90-99% of anal cancers as well.
The book's foreward was written by the 2008 Nobel Prize winner in medicine, Professor Harald zur Hausen, MD who discovered the link between cervical cancer and HPV. He recommends the book not only for lay persons, but healthcare providers as well.
My goal is not only to educate patients, but for healthcare providers to read the book as well. Not only does it provide up-to-date medical information but allows the physician to see the circumstances from the patient's point of view thus giving them a better understanding from which to care for their patients with HPV and HPV induced disease.
