General Hospital and pharmaceutical company Pfizer have teamed up, with the help of Laura Wright, to remind women that just because we’re in the middle of a global pandemic that has already killed over 300,000 Americans, it doesn’t mean that you can skip those health screenings used for early detection of cancer.
Laura Wright Advises Women Not To Forget
The actress who brings Carly Corinthos to our living rooms each day shared the Public Service Announcement she appears in on her Instagram page, along with the following caption.
“Cancer screenings have decreased due to COVID-19, but cancer doesn’t wait,” she cautioned. “Doctors’ offices are likely taking steps to make visits safer, from wearing masks to using virtual visits. Visit GetCancerScreened.com to find resources for your next appointment. Sponsored by Pfizer.”
As most of us know, early detection is key to beating cancer in all its various forms and while it may seem scary to visit a doctor’s office these days, it will be much worse to find out too late. Luckily, as the video shows, doctors are leading the way in taking precautions so as not to expose their patients to COVID. You can watch the PSA below.
Wright’s onscreen alter ego Carly is in a different kind of danger in Port Charles. She went up against scary mobster Cyrus (Jeff Kober), warning him to back down in a cryptic way that implied he won’t like what happens to him if he continues on his path. Carly is terrified for her daughter Joss (Eden McCoy) and her pals, who are digging into Taggert’s (Réal Andrews) alleged death.
Did Carly succeed in stopping Joss and warning off Cyrus or is everyone on a collision course as the mob war heats up, engulfing so many they love? Stay tuned to find out. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
