The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance launched an initiative in 2010; The United States of Teal asks each of the 50 United States to pledge support for women with ovarian cancer, turning the state teal for the day.
Last year, Arizona was one of 23 states joining the cause. This year, I have pledged my own support for the United States of Teal, and Teal Day on September 2nd, 2011 by signing this pledge card.
I will also be:
- Wearing teal in September, specifically on September 2, 2011, nationally recognized as Teal Day
- Authoring this blog post to help raise awareness
- Sharing links: www.ovariancancer.org
I hope you will join me in the fight against cancer and participate in any one of the above activities. Help Arizona raise awareness, support research for a cure, and improve the lives of affected by cancer.
