We did it! The Teal Journey Ovarian Cancer Foundation is now an official non-profit 501(c)(3) organization! The foundation has been in the works for a while and now our long-held dream has finally come to fruition - we are official!
This journey we're embarking on is going to raise awareness, educate, bring the community together, and raise funds for patients and families currently facing ovarian cancer. We truly believe that if women and men are aware of the warning signs of this disease, it can and will be detected and we can save lives. It truly is all about awareness and, for women, it is about knowing your body. We can't wait to get to work!
The warning signs of ovarian cancer are notoriously hard to detect because they are so common and are experienced by all women at some point in their lives. However, if you continue to experience them, your body may be trying to tell you something. If something doesn't feel right, listen to your body and advocate for yourself. Remember: ovarian cancer whispers, so be sure to listen!
We would like to thank everyone who helped get the foundation off the ground and we look forward to making a difference in the lives of survivors and families, spreading awareness about early detection, and connecting with other teal warriors from all over the state and country. Our hope in creating this foundation is to build a network of care and support. Together, we will unite to fight and we will one day conquer this disease.
We hope you will join us as we embark on theteal journeytogether! Let's stand together, starting today!
