®Tell Every Amazing Lady's mission is to promote public awareness and education of the signs, symptoms and risk factors of Ovarian Cancer, while providing support to survivors and raising funds for research in order to find the cure for Ovarian Cancer

Results:

In September 2015, ®Tell Every Amazing Lady rang the NASDAQ opening bell with our ®T.E.A.L. board, survivors, staff and loyal supporters for September, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. In 2013, T.E.A.L.'s CEO appeared on The Doctor Oz Show in an Ovarian Cancer segment. Since September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, the ® T.E.A.L. Walk/Run in Brooklyn, NY is an annual event that takes place every September in Prospect Park. In September 2013, T.E.A.L. had it’s first satellite ®T.E.A.L. Walk in Woodbury, NY. In 2014, T.E.A.L. launched a ® T.E.A.L. Walk in Fairfield, Pennsylvania and a ® T.E.A.L. Run in Alabama! After 7 years of working out of a home office with no major funding ®T.E.A.L. raised over $1 million dollars to help benefit Ovarian Cancer research and awareness since 2009. In 2015, we opened our first office space which is also a community center in Brooklyn, NY. In 2012, Citi Field and the NY Mets partnered with Tell Every Amazing Lady to establish the first ever Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day at Citi Field. This is now an annual event. T.E.A.L. partnered with Brooklyn Borough Hall for a historic event of lighting the Borough Hall building teal during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in 2013. In 2013 T.E.A.L. adopted a tree in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in honor of all of those who’ve been touched by Ovarian Cancer. T.E.A.L. funds Ovarian Cancer research grants at some of the country's most prestigious hospitals in the country, including the University of Washington, where a two and a half year study is being conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of a triple screen for Ovarian Cancer. Other recipients include the Kelly Gynecological Oncology Service at Johns Hopkins University. T.E.A.L’s scientific advisory board includes doctors from New York Presbyterian Hospital, Maimonides Medical Center and Lenox Hill Hospitals.

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 stumbled across T.E.A.L. last year trying to create an event in my community for ovarian cancer. I have an aunt who is a two-year survivor and wanted to create an event to honor her fight against the disease and also help spread awareness for a disease that "whispers." Pamela and her team have been nothing but supportive as we have tried creating a presence in the Southeast. Two events have taken place in the Southeast, so far, and we continue to grow and reach more and more people. I couldn't have done it without the help of the T.E.A.L. foundation.

I have volunteered for T.E.A.L. since it was founded 7 years ago. I am honored to have watched it grow each year. T.E.A.L. is an amazing organization raising money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer.

T.E.A.L. is an amazing organization! When I first found out about it, I was so excited to learn more about its mission and outreach. They provide support to survivors and their families and also have great awareness programs and resources all about ovarian cancer for the general public. This year was my first year volunteering for the annual T.E.A.L. walk and it was so nice seeing all the smiles on everyone's faces, including other volunteers, survivors, families, and friends. It was truly an amazing experience, being able to help in any way I could, to celebrate Ovarian Cancer survivors.

I have been volunteering with TEAL since its inception in 2009. Louisa was a great friend and to see what has been accomplished in her name since then is truly Amazing! Pamela and her team consistently host events that not only inspire others but also bring hope to so many, as well as raising money to support awareness. Their dedication to fighting this horrible disease is endless. Working at the walks and listening to the families affected praise this organization and all the good they are doing is always one of the highlights of my year ! Well Done TEAL !!!

I’ve been working with ®T.E.A.L. for about a year now and still think it’s AMAZING! I was initially attracted to this movement because 1) I love the color teal for Ovarian Cancer awareness 2) I was impressed with the variety of ®T.E.A.L. walks/events/fundraisers & the success ®T.E.A.L. has achieved in such a short amount of time, and 3) because my grandmother was an Ovarian Cancer survivor. Everyday I feel closer to her and I know she’s proud that I can use her experience with this disease as a educational tool in presentations. I know she’s absolutely loving the attention ☺. Every day is something new and exciting with ®T.E.A.L. whether we’re at a Health Fair spreading awareness about the signs, symptoms, and risk factors to Amazing Ladies everywhere or in the office organizing workshops, events, and walks throughout the USA. I’m so lucky to be a part of such a dynamic organization that does Amazing things for Amazing Ladies and thrilled I have another excuse to tell the world about my Amazing Lady, my grandma Lolo!

I lost my mother in 2003 to ovarian cancer. My family and I have supported T.E.A.L. since we found out they were having their first walk in September 2009. I wanted a way to honor my mother and try to avoid this type of loss from happening to other families. T.E.A.L. does a wonderful job in not only providing funds for research purposes and spreading awareness, but in supporting survivors and celebrating their victory over cancer as well. I am proud to say that I support this organization and all of the work that they do.

This organization is such a support system for survivors and for families of those affected by Ovarian Cancer. If I hear of someone who has Ovarian Cancer, I tell them about T.E.A.L. And they are thankful and grateful that there is somewhere to turn in such a scary point in their lives. T.E.A.L. gives hope to all involved!
