"[T.E.A.L.®] is really a place you can feel comfortable and people you can feel comfortable with and people who can help you share your story. It was very important to me to find something that was sort of a home grown grassroots, something with a real heart. And [T.E.A.L.®] is definitely that."- Ruthie, Brooklyn, NY
Located in Park Slope, Brooklyn, T.E.A.L.® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to decreasing mortality rates due to ovarian cancer. By promoting public awareness and education around the signs and symptoms associated with ovarian cancer, T.E.A.L.® seeks to empower women to listen to their bodies and pursue medical help at the earliest possible stages. In addition to educating the public about these vital preventive measures, T.E.A.L. ® helps survivors navigate the challenges associated with ovarian cancer through customized T.E.A.L. ® workshops and educational materials. Furthermore, T.E.A.L.® stages T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run events in order to raise funds and educate the public.
In particular, T.E.A.L. ® would like to expand our Youth Ambassador program.
Our goal is to have 5 Youth Ambassadors for 2018, requiring $1,325 in total for the supplies for all 5 ambassadors.
With a donation of $265, you can sponsor 1 T.E.A.L. ® Youth Ambassador & provide the materials necessary to develop a community outreach campaign. With a smaller donation of your choice, you can partially sponsor a T.E.A.L. ® Youth Ambassador.
Even a donation of $1 or $5 will go a long way to enable us to continue to engage in critical outreach and fund our program expenses. Any donation is appreciated!
Ovarian Cancer claims the lives of approximately 14,270 Americans each year. Join us in our fight against this deadly disease, and donate today to help us truly Tell Every Amazing Lady® about ovarian cancer.
