Teal Good Inc.
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer, and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year.
In February of 2020, I became one of them.
What began as a routine physical turned into a dizzying spiral of tests, ultrasounds, CT scans, and finally, a full hysterectomy, appendectomy, and the removal of an ovarian mass roughly the size of a football (true story!)
At the time, I was a freshly 42 and energetic mom to a 4yr old with a full-time career, averaging 10,000 steps a day and five indoor cycling classes a week. The final results following my surgery - Stage 1, Grade 1 ovarian cancer was actually excellent news and quite rare, given ovarian cancer often goes undetected until later stages. But we can change that.
Our Team - Teal Good Inc. - is walking for all women with ovarian cancer, those in treatment, and the families affected by this disease who relentlessly rise to challenge after challenge. They deserve our support and so much more.
Every dollar we raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada. Funds will be used to fund vital research, spur advocacy efforts, and provide support so that we can help women with, or at risk of, ovarian cancer live fuller, better, longer lives.
Please do what you can to educate yourself on ovarian cancer and give what you can to stop this lady killer in its tracks. If you are up for it this September, join us for the “virtual” walk — our first of many!
