Informative and heartbreaking
3 December 2014 | by georgialindersSee all my reviews

I am so glad that I went to see the screening of this film in La Crosse, Wisconsin. It was so informative and heartbreaking at the same time. It had a huge impact on me and I am going to be more open about this subject in the future especially with my friends kids. The stories were told in a way that made me really care about the women and what they went through. It can happen to anyone, and has happened to some of my friends. Kelly's story touched me the most. Thank you for making this. It was written and directed by a dear friend from my high school, Mark Hefti. I hope it can be seen by as many people as it takes to raise more awareness about HPV and cervical cancer.
