A long-time online friend recently let me know that September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and today is the day to wear teal for ovarian cancer awareness. While I’m not always one to jump on the bandwagon of these types of campaigns, today I comply:
Wear Teal for Ovarian Cancer Awareness
I personally know only one person who has had ovarian cancer, the mother of a friend with whom I’ve lost touch. I know little about her personal struggle aside from it being her second or third time around with a woman’s cancer of some kind, and the latest diagnosis was extremely rough on her (as to be expected). For this reason I sensed a quiet call to wear teal today.
A little bit about the color teal:
Teal is a color for healing, devotion, and trustworthiness. Teal is also the color of Sexual Violence Awareness, so if you purchased an article of teal clothing for one cause, it can do double-duty!
