This is a prerecorded interview from Instagram

At the age of 25, Tamika Felder was diagnosed with cervical cancer and underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. She lost her uterus, her cervix, and as a result, her fertility. Tamika opted to use her experience and her loud, powerful and humorous voice to educate other women about ways to prevent cervical cancer. By telling her story, Tamika inspired other women to start speaking about HPV and cervical cancer, which led to a network of survivors supporting each other and educating each other. From this network, Cervivor was born.

Tamika’s path of patient-to-advocate / survivor-to-Cervivor inspires and mentors not only patients and medical communities, but anyone who has struggled with obstacles in their life. Named a “Cancer Rebel,” by Newsweek in a 2017 cover story, Tamika recently released the book, Seriously, What Are You Waiting For? 13 Actions To Ignite Your Life & Achieve The Ultimate Comeback. She speaks at meetings and conferences around the globe, mobilizing audiences to address the challenges in their lives, “get unstuck” and live life with purpose.
