I had actually participated in the T.E.A.L. Walk in 2011 not knowing the story or mission of T.E.A.L. I first heard about the amazing story of T.E.A.L. and its mission; to promote the signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and to help find a cure for this deadly disease, while attending an after school seminar at Brooklyn College. I only ended up attending to keep a friend company, but little did I know how impressed I would be with this organization. Pamela the Co-Founder and Executive Director at T.E.A.L. was the one who spoke about her and her sister Louisa's journey and about how still after her sister's death in 2011, she has dedicated her whole life to getting people to "Tell Every Amazing Lady" about this disease. Awareness and Research is T.E.A.L.'s primary focus. Pamela inspired me with her words and knowledge on the subject. My mother is a Breast Cancer survivor and I have always had such a hard time talking about it, watching Pamela speak about her sister and other survivors made me realize that the only way we can help fight any cancer is my helping out, and speaking out. At the end of the seminar she asked that if anyone would like to intern to please contact her. I saw this as a sign to help out and a few weeks later I had worked out an internship with Pamela.

I have been extremely proud to be a team member of this growing organization. I have no doubt in my mind that with the determination and leadership of Pamela and the heart put into it by all the volunteers, survivors, and board members that this will be a leading national Ovarian Cancer organization in 10 years. T.E.A.L. since its start in 2009 has raised over a quater of a million dollars in research. They have helped promote awareness all over NYC, they have the largest Ovarian Cancer Walk in NYC, partnered with the NY Mets for the first Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day at Citi Field ,they have helped survivors feel like that had a support system, and as they continue to grow T.E.A.L. keeps that family/ grassroots feel in everything they do. This is just not another corporate company it is a family. It has been my privilege to work with Pamela, and all the volunteers at T.E.A.L. to help "Tell Every Amazing Lady about Ovarian Cancer.

I am a college student currently completing an internship with T.E.A.L., and I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful it has been to work here! I'm proud to be involved with an organization and group of people that are so mission-driven, ambitious, creative, and thoroughly supportive. I have already learned so much about what a nonprofit requires, not only to be successful and grow, but also to maintain integrity and community. As a student, I can also say that T.E.A.L. has been an especially unique environment for me because of how genuinely involved and trusted I've been with the work. Everyone's ideas and individual abilities are valued here. T.E.A.L. is a truly great and meaningful organization for everyone who's been touched by it.

Interning at T.E.A.L. for the summer has been an incredible experience. This whole organization is so inspiring for everyone involved. Everyone involved with T.E.AL., especially the CEO Pamela Esposito-Amery, really truly care to help others and to provide the knowledge they need about ovarian cancer. The amount of work put into this organization as a whole is incredible. Running the social media for the summer really gave me a look at how many people are affected by and involved with T.E.A.L. and it is truly amazing.

I've volunteered with T.E.A.L. for only a few months now i can truly see how passionate and giving this organization is to its supporters. The Amazing Lady Community truly is one of the warmest and helping-hand ready i've experienced. Having a medical career background I can tell the difference between those who care about their patrons and those who simply want their name out there. This organization and most specifically its co-founder Pamela Esposito-Amery truly have a warm heart. This foundation deserves to be supported in all avenues possible.

T.E.A.L. is an amazing organization! They have helped me with the support I need to continue through my struggles. I am an 8 year survivor and they give me hope that the research is out there to cure this disease. I will assist them with whatever I can to get this done! I was very happy to join T.E.A.L. walk 5 years ago to get the word out about awareness.

I am a survivor since 2008 and until Teal was organized there was no place for Ovarian cancer patients to go. Teal provides support, knowledge and promotes awareness. Through the year long activities such as walk/run and baseball games money is raised to aid reasearch in hopefully finding a cure for this dreadful disease. TEAL=HOPE

Tell Every Amazing Lady is an amazing organization which raises money for research and to help find a cure. I was lucky to know Louisa, one of the founders of TEAL. I watched her and her sister Pamela build TEAL from the ground up and raise millions over the past years with just the help of volunteers. I wholeheartedly am commited to TEAL as an organization. This year alone my mother, aunt and grandmother were all diagnosed with cancer. Organizations that are grass roots and have no large overhead costs are the ones we should be donating to. I full recommend teal and hope we can find a cure !

Volunteering at TEAL has given me a better understand of how important early detection is. Since currently, there are no tests to screen for ovarian cancer, it is crucial to recognize the symptoms. The staffs are all extremely dedicated in educating the public about this deadly cancer and have reach across to many states. Being able to work so close with the organization has allowed me to see how friendly and comforting they are to survivors and survivors’ friends and family members. Being able to volunteer at TEAL has taught me much more than I thought I would be learning from them.

I had the privilege of working closely with T.E.A.L. and was so impressed by this organization's dedication to working as an efficient, effective nonprofit. T.E.A.L's enthusiasm for spreading awareness and commitment to raising funds for Ovarian cancer research has helped so many women already, and I am so proud to contribute to their future impact through volunteering and participating in many T.E.A.L. Walks to come!

I have had the opportunity to partner closely with T.E.A.L. over the past few months. I am continually impressed by the organization's drive to spread awareness and education about ovarian cancer throughout NYC and the country. I am looking forward to participating in the upcoming 5K/Walk in September and many years to come!
