Happy September! And happy Ovarian Cancer Awareness month!
In October the world will be painted pink honoring breast cancer survivors and raising awareness but September is all about teal! I mentioned a few posts back that one of the simple and fun ways to spread awareness is to paint your toes teal. Since most of us don't wear teal nail polish on a regular basis, someone is bound to say,
"Oh, I like your teal toes."
Even if what they mean is,
"Uh, that's kinda weird."
But when they say something you can respond with,
"Yeah, it's ovarian cancer awareness month and the awareness color is teal so I painted my toes this color to help raise awareness of this cancer that is called the 'silent killer.' The symptoms are insidious and it's so important that women know the signs so that they can communicate with their doctor and be diagnosed early. You can learn more at ovariancancer.org."
Spread the word!
