Justine’s Story(2:28)

My mom's diagnosis and her death changed my life because I became dedicated to making sure that no one else dies from an HPV-related cancer.

Justine Almada speaks tenderly of her mom who died at age 51 of anal cancer caused by the HPV virus. Justine’s mission is to  spread awareness of this type of cancer, remove stigma and remind us that the HPV vaccine now prevents anal cancer. (Courtesy of the National HPV Vaccine Roundtable)
