Last week I wrote about my experience watching my Aunt keep at her fight against Ovarian cancer, and her daughter Shelly and I had a great conversation about how little attention and support this cancer gets. It has a REALLY high mortality rate and very little progress has been made in improving this number in almost 30 years. In other words, we need to do a better job raising awareness about this cancer for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month before everything turns Pink in October.

So, tomorrow we are doing one massive Teal-wearing Tuesday to make up for a lax September (but you know we will be back with a vengeance next fall!). Everyone can bring awareness to just how awful and undersupported this disease is tomorrow in 3 simple steps:

1. Wear Teal, because it is Tuesday!
2. Take a picture of yourself looking amazing!
3. Share the picture on Facebook, Instagram, and other cooler social media I don't know about.  With the picture, share one fact about Ovarian Cancer- it can be about the survival rate, the late detection, or even a story about your own experience (or love for someone who is fighting right now)!

If you don't want to be that kind of fancy, you could also just wear teal and then explain what you are doing when people shower you with compliments. I am just elated people want to get involved at all!

Thank you to everyone who has already shared the last post on this, and I can't wait to see some glamorous teal duds tomorrow!
