Mission: 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: 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. T.E.A.L.® rang the opening and closing bells for the New York Stock Exchange multiple times throughout the years. 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. Since 2013, T.E.A.L.® has begun to expand to have satellite T.E.A.L.® Walks in different cities of the USA. After 7 years of working out of a home office with no major funding T.E.A.L.® raised millions of dollars to help benefit ovarian cancer research and awareness since 2009. In 2015, we opened T.E.A.L.® Community Center in Brooklyn, NY which is the only of it's kind for ovarian cancer. 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.® partners with monuments and buildings in different cities such as Brooklyn Borough Hall, the Parachute Jump and City Hall plus Greenwich Connecticut's Town Hall during September for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. 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 many of the country's most prestigious hospitals and institutions 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 Top Hospitals along the east coast. Since 2018 survivors and patients benefit nationwide from the T.E.A.L.® Amazing Lady Membership Program which is free for those diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Non-profit rating website Guidestar gave T.E.A.L.® an Platinum rating of 5 out of 5 stars. T.E.A.L.® was Top Rated by Great Nonprofits since 2012.

Programs: Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer® (T. E. A. L.® ) organized to hold and sponsor events to raise awareness of the early symptoms of ovarian cancer and promote early detection. T.E.A.L.® did this by utilizing a walk to spread the word of early detection. At the walk, all participants received information about the early symptoms and early detection. Teal'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.

When I first moved into my home in Marine Park, Brooklyn Louisa McGregor was the first person to come over and introduce herself and make us feel at home because that was the type of person she was. From there we established a friendship and she told me about her ovarian cancer diagnoses and then continued to tell me about this walk she and her sister Pamela were putting together in Prospect Park, Brooklyn and I was like sign me up and I have been with the T.E.A.L. organization since then. The work that Pamela and her staff do is simply amazing and they are true to their mission to spread awareness, education and one day find a test for early detection. I am truly proud to be part of the organization.

I met Louisa in the winter of 2008, she was so upbeat and happy I never would have guessed she had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. When I did find out I was shocked, not only because she didn't appear to be sick at all but because it's ovarian cancer. At that point I had heard of it, but had never met someone with it. And someone like Louisa, who is so charismatic and friendly, really brought this disease into reality for me. I knew I had to learn everything I could about ovarian cancer. I mean, as a woman, how could I not? Again, I was shocked to learn how little the public - and even doctors - know about ovarian cancer. I saw no other choice but to get involved and volunteer with TEAL. Not only has TEAL educated me about the disease but it has taught me how very important it is to educate others. I have joined a lot of teams and groups through the years, but I have to say Teal is one of the best organizations I have ever joined and I am proud to call myself a member. If you are looking to make a difference and want to join a great organization with extraordinary people this is the one.

My name is Erika Gonzalez, and I am a second-year graduate student at New York University. I am currently interning at T.E.A.L., and it has been a great experience so far. One of the aspects that intrigued me to intern at T.E.A.L. is that the organization focuses on bringing awareness at all stages of a women’s life regardless of race or social class. I focus on Spanish outreach, translating materials to Spanish, and working on emails, phone calls, websites, and infographics.

I have been involved with T.E.A.L throughout the month of September and am majorly impressed with the amount of work they did fundraising and spreading awareness throughout ovarian cancer awareness month. They are always looking for new ways to spread awareness through partnering with hospitals or other organizations. They care deeply about the survivors they support and it's great to see the variety of different support services they have. They constant push to expand and support as many ovarian cancer patients as possible is incredible.

I previously worked. at T.E.A.L and I fell in love with their mission, values and story. However, it is very different working under their management. You are surveillance, berated, and and not valued. The founder is very nice at the beginning, but a switch turns off when you ask questions or for guidance. Not a very inclusive environment either, and it is a shame since their mission is so great. Do better please.

I have been in touch with T.E.A.L.® since they attended a career fair at my university this past March. I was extremely moved by how genuinely interested the staff was in every candidate that came to their table. The CEO and co-founder of T.E.A.L.®, Pamela, was there herself and even conducted interviews herself personally. Throughout the hiring process, the T.E.A.L.® staff was extremely transparent. I have now been an intern for them for about two weeks, and so far, I feel incredibly welcome. It is extremely evident that they care a lot about not just maximizing their interns' strengths, but helping their interns grow too. They also put an incredible amount of energy and passion into all the events that they organize. Overall, I have had a very positive experience with T.E.A.L.® and can't wait to become more involved within it.

I worked with this organization in the past in order to fulfill a school requirement but I have continued to be involved with T.E.A.L because of the vital work that they do. There is not a lot of resources out there for Ovarian Cancer patients and their families and I personally know that because I am personally affected by this horrendous disease. This organization is one of the few that works with the survivors of this disease as well as the caregivers. They provide resources, have workshops, and a safe space for them to come to. Moreover, their annual walk is one of the biggest specifically for Ovarian cancer which is desperately needed in order to highlight the need for research for this disease so there can one day be a screening test in place and ultimately a cure.
I volunteered with this organization and will continue to do so because of the important work they are doing. It is a great place for volunteers because you always feel like your contributions and input are valued.

Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer is a great non-profit organization that raises awareness on ovarian cancer. There aren't any accurate screening tests for ovarian cancer so this organization is helpful to educate women on the signs/symptoms and risk factors so that ovarian cancer can be prevented or detected at an earlier state.

A few years ago I interviewed Louisa McGregor’s sister for the Canarsie Courier newspaper as a profile of the non profit organization. After hearing the long struggle and about Louisa’s journey to bring awareness to ovarian cancer, I decided to run the TEAL 5K race to benefit awareness of the disease. It was my FIRST competitive race and I encountered so many amazing women and families of survivors. Ever since my first race in 2015, I’ve joined this charity to keep Louisa’s memory alive and support all women battling this disease. This non profit does a great job supporting the cause!!!

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 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.

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.

I have personally watched ®T.E.A.L. change lives. Whether it is providing supportive programs for those who have lost someone to ovarian cancer, or providing strength and empowerment to the strong women fighting it, everyone that is involved with ®T.E.A.L. is changed for the better. Over the years I have seen ®T.E.A.L. grow from an organization in small home office into a community center. I have seen their ovarian cancer walk grow from a couple of participants to thousands. ®T.E.A.L. is constantly gaining influence each year and reaching more and more people.
