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: 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 July 2016, T.E.A.L.® rang the opening bell for the New York Stock Exchange. 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 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. 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 such as Brooklyn Borough Hall, the Parachute Jump and City 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 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. 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.

I found out about T.E.A.L® through my internship search but was drawn to this organization for personal reasons. Their mission and objectives resonates with me since my mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer last year. Having the opportunity to work with them and seeing the handwork and dedications of everyone involved with this organization has been a great experience. The support they provide to the survivors and their families is much needed and valuable. I am grateful that I am able to contribute my time to this outstanding organization.

When I first heard about TEAL, I was automatically touched by the organization's founding story. I am a supporter of TEAL and have been to the walk last year. The survivor ceremony was very inspiring and I would like to thank TEAL for all they do every day!

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.

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.
