A lot of cervical cancer is caused by an STD call HPV. I don't know how she got it, but it's a reminder that there is NOT SUCH THING AS SAFE SEX. We all can and should wait until marriage for sex, and stay faithful. That's best for our souls, minds, and bodies, not to mention divorce rates. The more pre-marital sex, the more common divorce is.

RIP Yvetta! Cervical Cancer can sometimes go undetected, yes yearly exams help but sometimes it does not show up until it is too late!
