    It’s not easy to keep up with Jan Carter of Savannah. The 70-year-old works out with a personal trainer, makes beautiful creations with her knitting needles, volunteers at a local yarn shop, takes care of four cats, and spends time with her husband, Bob. She never takes her good health for granted, especially since she experienced a life-changing health scare a year ago.

    It was October 2010, and 33-year-old Libby Malphrus was juggling more than most people can handle. She was working full time as a genetic counselor for a perinatal practice, parenting a 4-year-old, balancing the demands of marriage and home life, and – perhaps most overwhelming -- helping her mother go through treatment for primary peritoneal cancer. The last thing she needed was the phone call from her gynecologist’s office stating that her recent Pap test results were abnormal.
