Cervical Cancer: 20 Minutes Can Save Your Life!


For two years I received periodic letters from my GP advising me on the importance of going for a cervical cancer screening test, I would read the letter and the pamphlets attached, and tell myself I will find time to go and do it. I never did, and never remembered until the next letter arrived and then I procrastinated again.

One day I went in to see the GP for something totally unrelated and she asked if I had done the screening, I said no, she said why, I smiled. She opened up the appointment schedule and told me all the available dates, this time I picked a date. It was a Friday, I went there straight from work, tired and exhausted. I almost postponed it again but I didn’t.

I went in to see the nurse in charge, she briefly explained what it is about and why I should do it, and then proceeded to carry out the test. In less than twenty minutes it had finished!  I asked her if that was it, she said yes. I got my test result few weeks later.

I felt quite stupid that I had postponed it for two years, all I needed was 20mins!

Cervical Cancer is said to be one of the easiest cancer to prevent, if the test is done on time, they can identify cells on the cervix that may become cancerous and take the necessary steps to prevent it.

Thank God the result of my test came out all good, but I just keep thinking that in the two years that I procrastinated, something that I could have prevented could have gotten so bad and taken my life!

January is the month dedicated to creating awareness about Cervical Cancer and I encourage you to take action today by finding out where to get the Cervical Cancer Screening and going for it.

    I have been using this system for some time now; I will be showing you how to make unlimited cash with your liberty reserve account and a perfect money account. I will try to make it as short as possible. But clear, just like every other business your interest and seriousness counts.

    "The reward for hard work is success".


    1. open a liberty reserve account at http://www.libertyreserve.com ( this is free).

    2. Open a perfect money account at http://www.perfectmoney.com (this is free).

    3. Fund your liberty reserve account with a minimum of 11 USD, because of transaction charges, actually you needed a minimum of 10 USD.

    (Note: To fund or sell your liberty reserve, go to http://www.google.com to search for an e-currency exchanger close to you.)

    4. Go to http://www.rapid-goldex.com , and exchange 10 USD from your liberty reserve account to your perfect money account.

    1 LR——>1.28 PM, so 10 LR—-> 12.80 PM.

    5. Go to http://www.superchange.ru or http://www.swapgold.com , exchange 12.80 Perfect money to 11.01liberty reserve.

    1 PM —-> 0.86 LR, so 12.80 PM—>11.01 LR. You have gain 1.01 USD.

    6. Repeat the exchange process from LR—->PM—>LR.

    You can always increase your capital, because the more money you exchange the faster u make your cash. I can make up to 257 USD per day. Doing up to 25 exchanges per hour. But there is also no harm in starting small.
