Actress Cote de Pablo was too busy to get a Pap test

"It's not just about you. It's about your loved ones, too."

Chilean-American actress and singer Cote de Pablo was too busy with her career and life to get a regular Pap test. When she finally got around to it, “things didn’t look too good. We thought I might have cervical cancer.” But after lots of worries, no cancer.

“I’ve always been very close to my mother. When we finally got the results, she broke down. And that’s when I realized it’s not just about me. It’s about your loved ones, too.

So, women get a Pap test to check for cervical cancer. Please pay attention to your health for you and the people who care about you.”
