Good afternoon OC friends,


Hope you have some beautiful “TEAL” pieces of clothing in your closet.  Did you know that September is NATIONAL OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS MONTH?


Wish there would be a few football teams wearing “TEAL” once in a while.  There are other colors in our crayon box besides “pink”.  Today, I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, and I will be wearing “TEAL”.


There are several sites talking about Ovarian Cancer and I will list some of them below for your information.  But I have found some sites that I use and recommend for specific info on Ovarian Cancer.



These sites are NOT limited to Ovarian Cancer (OC) but I’ve just pulled up their link referring specifically to Ovarian Cancer today.  I use these sites to find out information about other types of cancer as well.  So just thought I’d share them with you.  Contrary to what some nurses and doctors say to “stay away from the Internet”, I would be “dumb” if it were not for being able to read about the cancers that have affected me and my family.  Naturally, we must go to “reputable” sites, and not necessarily believe everything we read on the “side bars”.  But we’re all smart women here that want to be well informed.  Doctors respect the patients that research their own cancer and ask intelligent questions. 


But for the purpose of this note—be sure to wear something TEAL to bring awareness to our cancer especially during the month of September.  I’m not selling anything, nor soliciting funds for any particular organization, just thankful for those organizations that have devoted themselves to making the public at large AWARE of Ovarian Cancer.
