Teal is the awareness color of ovarian cancer. 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!

3rd Annual One Force to Make a Difference Ovarian Cancer Symposium
The focus of this year’s symposium is to provide ovarian cancer survivors and their caregivers the tools they need to achieve wellness during and after treatment. Learn simple exercises to do at home. Try Gentle Yoga, Jin Shin Juyutsu or Meditation. Meet other survivors and learn about other resources available to you.
One Force To Make a Difference is a collaborative of multiple organizations sharing similar individual missions. The mission of the One Force collaborative is to work together to develop synergies that will effect increased education and awareness about ovarian cancer; improved support for survivors; and better resources for caretakers. One Force to Make A Difference supports and participates in fund raising and other events that contribute to innovative, cutting edged ovarian cancer research.
