Fight Cervical Cancer, Save Women Worldwide
Cervical cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths in women around the world. In some countries, it is the leading cause of cancer deaths in women. This easily treatable form of cancer is so prevalent because of the high costs involved in the screening process. Quite simply put, many women cannot afford a screening or proper follow-up care. Imagine a world where screening for cervical cancer was as simple and cost efficient as a pregnancy test. Imagine a world where every woman has an equal chance to live free of cervical cancer. That world may not be as out of reach as you think.
Preciva is an innovative company that has developed a wireless electronic test to screen for cervical cancer. With 270,000 women around the world dying from cervical cancer, a treatable and detectable cancer, Preciva is making it a duty to put an end to those deaths. Not only has Preciva come up with an easier, more technologically savvy way of screening for cervical cancer, is has also managed to make the entire process more affordable. The kit itself costs less than $2 per unit. In addition, Preciva has come up with a revolutionary follow-up process, linking screenings to follow-up care via mobile phone in an affordable way. With health costs on the rise, Preciva has even kept the poorest countries in mind. Women all over the world have an ally with Preciva.
Preciva is off to a running start in its fights against cervical cancer. This advanced, affordable, and innovative design will make it much easier to detect cervical cancer in women. The work this company is doing, however, is not free. Preciva needs a minimum of $10,400 to assist in the production of a working prototype of this screening product. With 33 backers to date, Preciva has already raised just over $5,000 in the quest to Fight Cervical Cancer and Save Women Worldwide.
