Jeanne - Woman of Teal
I first met Jeanne Moran when I joined the Northern NJ National Ovarian Cancer Coalition chapter. She was just a few years older than me, was teacher ( like I was) and was in remission. She and her family were active members of the group who raised awareness for ovarian cancer and raised funds for NOCC.
If I recall correctly ( and that is difficult for me lately) we both recurred around the same time. The difference was she has been in treatment since then. For the past few days I have been wondering how our ovarian cancers are different. Why has her disease metastasized further where mine has not. Oh how I wish we could get answers to those types of questions.
On Tuesday I was saddened to learn that Jeanne, with her family by her side, passed away.
She will be missed by her loving family, her students and her NOCC friends.
A friend wrote , "Jeanne was very valiant". Yes, she was a very valiant Woman of Teal.
Every Day is a Blessing!
