THE STORY:

T.E.A.L. stands for Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation.The color teal symbolizes Ovarian Cancer.

Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation's mission is to promote public awareness and education of the signs, symptoms and risk factors of Ovarian Cancer, while providing support to survivors and raising funds for research in order to find the cure for Ovarian Cancer.

T.E.A.L. is a grassroots 501C3 not for profit organization founded by two sisters from Brooklyn, NY with a passion to draw attention to Ovarian Cancer, which is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers. Through our annual T.E.A.L. Walks/Runs and other events throughout the year T.E.A.L. has raised just over a million dollars benefiting Ovarian Cancer research and awareness programs.

T.E.A.L. is a grassroots organization run out of a home office with the help of volunteers. Since T.E.A.L.’s inception, many major institutions and corporations have begun to take notice of T.E.A.L.’s importance to the community. We need your help to continue on our mission.
Ovarian Cancer is an important women's health issue. There's currently NO SCREENING test so it's usually caught at a late stage.
