Women of Teal is a play on the words "Man of Steel" used to describe Superman. I have found my fellow ovarian cancer survivors to be the strongest, most helpful women in the world. They are truly Women of Teal!
I hope women diagnosed with ovarian cancer who live in New Jersey and around the country will find this site useful.
Over the past ten years I have met many women diagnosed with ovarian cancer as well as other gynecologic cancers. Some of these women I interacted with in real life - at events, support groups and through ovarian cancer awareness organizations. Other women I got to know through online groups - Facebook, Inspire or Smart Patients. On this the last day of Gynecologic Cancer Awareness month I write this post to honor those diagnosed as well as to remember the women whose lives were lost to a gynecologic cancer. These women have touched my life.
