A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Hanah needed help. She knew she needed to see a doctor, and she went to a clinic that was extremely unwelcoming, full of stigma and bias, and made her feel badly about her body. After that jarring experience, the fear of returning to a similar environment prevented Hanah from seeking care—for any reason. But when health problems go untreated, things get worse. She knew she couldn’t wait any longer.
That’s when a family member encouraged Hanah to schedule an appointment at her local Planned Parenthood health center. She was nervous, but once she arrived, she was immediately overwhelmed by the compassion shown by staff and clinicians.
The high-quality care Hanah received gave her comfort and confidence. After results from her Pap smear showed abnormal cells, her doctor walked her through the next steps, which included a LEEP procedure. Our financial navigators helped connect her to a program that covers costs associated with preventive treatment for different cancers. Because of the many services we provide, Hanah got life-saving treatment at Planned Parenthood without causing financial difficulty.
“Planned Parenthood changed my life. My experience showed me the lengths they will go to help their patients and provide the best care possible that is consistent and individualized. Planned Parenthood always has your back.” —Hanah
