“50% of us will get cancer in our lifetime. 50% will be afraid to share this fact at work. But 92% of patients believe the support they get at work positively impacts their health. Let’s pledge to build a supportive workplace for those who are living with cancer.” - #workingwithcancer pledge
More than 14,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer each year, but the disease is preventable! Cervical cancer can often be found early, and sometimes even prevented, by having regular screening tests.

Do you own a company? Will you take the pledge to ensure that any and all of your employees are supported during their cancer journey? So far, Disney, Google, Microsoft, Marriott, and Meta are among the signatories of a pledge led by Publicis.
