Teal Sister- Ellen

Last Wednesday I wrote a post about the passing of C ( Carl) the husband of E (Ellen) . The photo is of Carl, Ellen with NJ Senator Leonard Lance this past August at the Somerset Patriots game to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer. This was the second year that Carl and Ellen helped to organize the event. I learned last night that Ellen lost her battle with ovarian cancer. What a sad week this has been. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Santaniello family and her Northern NJ NOCC friends.

These losses only make me more motivated to spread the word about ovarian cancer's symptoms, to support survivors and to raise funds for ovarian cancer research. We need to find an early detection test and a CURE!

Every Day is a Blessing!
