I became involved with T.E.A.L.® this past year. My Aunt Eileen had been fighting ovarian cancer for five years, until she passed away in October. Only then did I learn of how much comfort and support she received from T.E.A.L.® and the great work they were doing. I knew I had to help in any way I could to Tell Every Amazing Lady®!
My goal 2023 United Airlines NYC Half is to raise money for and awareness about ovarian cancer research and T.E.A.L.®, to give back and thank them for all they did for my Aunt Eileen.
To be honest, I’m not the biggest runner. However, I have come to love running as a celebration of what our bodies can do and the opportunity it provides to be outside with nature (especially in the city) for a while.
I wish there was more awareness around the symptoms and a better screening process for ovarian cancer. Many women are diagnosed too late because there’s no proper screening for ovarian cancer and symptoms can present themselves so similarly to G.I. issues that they are brushed under the rug.
I’d like to tell all the amazing ladies who are battling/have battled ovarian cancer that we will keep fighting with them and for them – for better research, screening, awareness, and attention.
Please share these resources with everyone; every little bit counts!
