A force of nature. That’s the term that comes to mind when you first meet Christine Baze, singer-songwriter, activist and cervical cancer survivor. After being diagnosed at 31, she went through surgery and treatment that saved her life — and that provided her with a mission. Christine’s cancer was caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV. In the 15 years since her diagnosis, she’s used her inspiring words, songs and story to educate others about the HPV vaccine, which can prevent cancer caused by HPV. Whether on stage performing, advocating in the halls of government, or appearing in an award-winning documentary, Christine is using her experience to give back and help others.
