Get Ready for Teal Time

It is time to get ready for September - Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Time to break out the Teal - from head to toe across the country!

Wear Teal Day for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is Friday, September 7th. Help spread the word by wearing teal -  and posting your picture on their Facebook page.

I can't wait to receive my Teal Toes symptoms cards - once you get the conversation started, have the symptom cards handy to pass on.

The Chicago skyline will glow with teal on September 21st for the NOCC Teal Lights Celebration and Fundraiser.

They will Turn the Canal Teal in Indianapolis at a free event on September 27th.

Are you down under? Join the 100 Women Walk from Docklands to Donvale in Australia on September 8th. This walk is named for the 100 women who are newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer every month.

Join the Teal Magnolia's for their Ladies Only Golf Tournament in Tallahassee, FL on September 27th.

How about a climb for life? Hike the Wasatch Mountains in Utah while raising funds for ovarian cancer research and awareness September 14-16th. I'm sure this is a very powerful event for the survivors.

September 7th will be Ovarian Cancer Awareness Night when the St. Louis Cardinals play the Milwaukee Brewers.  I hope there will be lots of teal along with the Cardinal red in the stands.

Also in the St. Louis area, September 23rd will be the Families Run for Ovarian Cancer 5K/Walk in Forest Park. This fund raiser for ovarian caner research at the Siteman Cancer Center has raised $125,000 in the last 5 years and has a goal of $75,000.00 for 2012. We want to see Dr. David Mutch with a BIG donation check this year!

So what is the point of all this Teal? - it is to start the conversation with your co-worker, a neighbor or your plumber. There is still much work to be done to put this silent killer to rest.
