Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic
Movie presentation of Someone You Love: The HPV Epidemic
The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) may be the most widespread, misunderstood and potentially dangerous
epidemic that most people hardly know anything about. 80 percent of all people under 50 years of age will
have a strain of the virus at some point in their lives and most will not even realize they have it. Cervical cancer
is almost exclusively caused by HPV and it is the 2nd leading cancer in women. Worldwide, cervical cancer
kills over 250,000 women every year. Meet five unforgettable women whose lives have been changed forever
and even interrupted by this deadly virus.

Event Info: The Hawaii Immunization Coalition is pleased to present this one‐night screening of “Someone You
Love: The HPV Epidemic.” Join us for the viewing of this powerful documentary about five women whose lives have
been changed forever by the human papillomavirus (HPV). About 20 million Americans are currently infected with
HPV and about 6 million more get infected each year. HPV can cause several different types of cancers, including
cervical cancer in women. Each year in the United States, about 12,000 women get cervical cancer and about 4,000 are expected to die from it. HPV vaccines are
safe and effective. All preteens should receive the three dose series of HPV vaccine at age 11 or 12 years. Teen boys and girls who did not get the vaccine when
they were younger should get it now. Young women can get HPV vaccine through age 26, and young men can get vaccinated through age 21.
