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.

I wrote this blog post for the #gyncsm blog. But I thought this topic is so important I needed to share it with my readers and others who may not be on Twitter.
The SGO (Society of Gynecologic Oncology) is conducting theirAnnual MeetingMarch 12-15, 2017. You can follow research presented at the meeting by following the hashtag#SGOMtgon Twitter.Note thatwe'll discussSGO Meeting highlightsduring our April 12th #gyncsm chat.
During their annual meeting, SGO will be conducting a social media campaign to advocate for gynecologic cancer clinical trials. #gynscm is please to support this campaign and we hope you will join us.
There has been a steep decline in the number of clinical trials in gynecologic cancer since the restructuring of the NCI-sponsored cooperative groups in 2012. Information about the campaign can be found in this SGO document.
