Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month 2020 – Teal Tuesday #4

For for the last few years, each September during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month I have shared my story with others, passed out ovarian cancer symptom cards, and have participated in walks to help support ovarian cancer awareness. This year there are virtual walks all over the country.

Having an actual walk really brought attention to ovarian cancer in our area. The television and newspaper coverage of the event reached many people in the community. The event brought many women living with ovarian cancer together and there were many supportive family members and friends walking with us.

In 2018 and 2019 I walked in the Savannah TEAL Walk. The T.E.A.L. Walk – Tell Every Amazing Lady. organization has events in several cities around the United States.

There was no walk in Savannah this year but Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month was recognized at a city council meeting and volunteers tied teal ribbons around trees in Forsyth Park to Turn the Towns Teal.

This year I am dedicating the month of September to ovarian cancer awareness.
