Our mission is to provide education about HPV infection, the HPV vaccine, and HPV-related cancers, specifically HPV-related oropharyngeal or head and neck cancers. HPVANDME is also dedicated to supporting people affected by HPV: patients, partners, and caregivers.

I am not a doctor. I’m a wife, mother, and multimedia journalist. When my husband was diagnosed with HPV throat cancer, I knew I had to do something to build public awareness about the HPV throat cancer pandemic.

HPVANDME is intended to help those who are and will be affected by HPV throat cancer. The reach is large … men, women, teenagers, parents, doctors, and researchers.

HPVANDME is about YOU. It’s about everyone who wants to know more about HPV throat cancer – how to prevent it, how to fight it, how to live through it. I welcome the many stories out there about HPV throat cancer. Each case carries similarities and unique experiences; and by sharing them, we will learn and help each other.

HPVANDME is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Thank you for your continued support. Together we will help prevent more cases of HPV throat cancer and help those who are fighting it, during and after treatment.
