Tell Every Amazing Lady® was pleased to partner with JScreen, a nonprofit organization that focuses on offering genetic testing and education. They participated in our annual event, the T.E.A.L.® Celebration and Women’s Health Expo in September 2022. Also, during the fall of 2022, JScreen provided T.E.A.L.® with vouchers for CancerGEN genetic testing kits. Through a campaign that was able to reach hundreds, 61 people received genetic testing at no cost. The CancerGEN testing kits test for genetic changes that increase risk for many types of cancer. Since there is no 100% accurate screening test for ovarian cancer, genetic testing can be lifesaving and is critical to those families at risk. T.E.A.L.® hopes to continue offering no cost lifesaving resources similar to this in the future.
