Teal has always been one of my favorite colors,
but in 2008 it catapulted itself to number one.
That year I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian Cancer is extremely hard to diagnose as its symptoms mimic several other diseases. Most women are not diagnosed until Stage 3 or 4. Staying true to the statistics, I was at Stage 3 when the tumor was found. After three months of inpatient chemo, I was declared free of disease and I still am.
When I discovered teal was the color of Ovarian Cancer Awareness, I was delighted. Teal has become my Color of Hope and it represents a part of who I am.
In September, which is the awareness month for Ovarian Cancer, I will elaborate more about the cancer itself. In fact, I will probably have several posts regarding it because if I can help one person, it will be worthwhile!
