I know I talk a lot about breast cancer, but ovarian cancer is really what started me on this journey. Ovarian cancer took the life of my beloved grandmother. Unfortunately, ovarian cancer does not receive the type of attention it should, and its symptoms are not often shared. Today marks a very important day, as the US Senate passed a resolution to officially make September Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. Hopefully this will bring more attention to the deadly disease (the deadliest of all gynecological cancers). Teal is also the color for ovarian cancer awareness, so remember to wear teal this September!
