I learned about T.E.A.L through a job fair I went to at Brooklyn College. From then on, I was inspired to get involved to support the fight against ovarian cancer because of the extraordinary story about this organization. The student club I'm currently in, pitched ideas to the CEO, Pamela, to see if she could come speak at our school. We were able to collaborate together successfully. Pamela spoke at Brooklyn College as a guest speaker during the club's event called "Advertising in Non-Profit". We received great feedback about the event because students learned about ovarian cancer as well as the business aspects of T.E.A.L.
I am a volunteer for TEAL. The team for TEAL are committed to what they do. The workshops they do help others like people who have been effected by ovarian cancer, survivors, patients, or loved ones of the ovarian cancer patients/survivors. Throughout each day, there are different tasks each person does that helps the ovarian cancer patients/survivors and their families. I see how each member works hard to get their work done and accomplished every time. They support the ovarian cancer patients/survivors and their families.
I just believe that the story this nonprofit had was a very unique one! In addition to the unique story I believed that this organization inspires lots of positive changes to everyone and that its mission value can relate with many things in the world
Pamela, the CEO of T.E.A.L came to Brooklyn College to speak at our event about Marketing in Non-Profit. She spent time sharing what symptoms can be linked to Ovarian Cancer and the reasons why the public needs to know more about Ovarian Cancer. She also took the time to share with us how her non-profit used branding, and marketing to gain awareness for their cause.
I became involved in T.E.A.L. as a volunteer through a connection in Scouting with the son of Louisa McGregor, one of the founders of the organization, who has since succumbed to ovarian cancer. I have watched this organization grow every year that I have been a part of it since its inception and know that their efforts are saving lives through the outstanding efforts they are making to raise awareness of this disease; and in raising funds to support research. The Boy Scouts are called to be of service to others as one of our core values. I feel that working with T.E.A.L. is the greatest service project that I now perform on an annual basis because of the impact it has on so many lives.
I have participated and volunteered in many T.E.A.L. events and functions and can say that the staff is top notch with great attention to detail, very mindful of money and time. As such, it's a first rate organization very worthy of your money and time.
My experience with T.E.A.L came about through a friend who lost her sister. Until then, I knew nothing about ovarian cancer. Throughout this journey I have learned what symptoms to look for, the lack of tests that exists for early detection and I have seen close hand the heart break involved when a diagnosis comes too late. It is why I have had the honor of volunteering with TEAL for the last 7yrs. We all have a mother, aunt, sister, cousin, daughter or friend and is why i believe in the importance of spreading the awareness and education to them all in order to help early detection.
T.E.A.L is an amazing organization. I had the opportunity of interning with them and has volunteered every year for their annual TEAL Walk since last three years. It's a team full of extremely hard working people. T.E.A.L has played a keen role in spreading awareness about Ovarian Cancer locally and nationally. Not only do they provide services & resources for the ovarian cancer survivors but also have support services & linkage to other resources for the family members of those touched by ovarian cancer. T.E.A.L has grown into this wonderful family of people who work so hard towards the goal of spreading awareness about risks & symptoms of ovarian cancer and funding research for better screening options. I feel proud to be a part of T.E.A.L and hope to continue working with them in future as well.
When I first learned about the Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation, aka T.E.A.L., I was inspired by their mission and story. The founders are examples of what it means to fight against adversity and I believe it resonates within the community that they serve. The staff, workshops and programs are amazing. Although I've volunteered with the organization for a short time, I can see how great of an impact it's making on the lives of people who are both directly and indirectly affected by ovarian cancer.
Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation is an amazing nonprofit that builds an incredibly strong community and let's women and families that have dealt with Ovarian Cancer know they are not alone.
