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. 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.

This is a great organization that is truly tackling ovarian cancer from all angles. They have support groups, awareness programs, workshops, connections for survivors, and more. While I was here I helped with a workshop that focused on raising awareness for genetic testing for cancer. This is a nonprofit that is truly dedicated to their work.

I had a great time as an intern at T.E.A.L.®. T.E.A.L.® is a collaborative and supportive environment, and I learned a lot from my projects and assignments. It is an amazing organization, and everyone works tirelessly to support survivors, fund research, and promote awareness of ovarian cancer.

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.

It’s not often that one comes across an organization and staff as dedicated as TEAL is.

I’ve known about TEAL for years and am so impressed by them and what they do. Educate. Fund raise. Support not only those with Ovarian Cancer but family members as well.

It’s an honor to know them

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.

T.E.A.L.® is amazing! T.E.A.L.'s provides a wonderful community for ovarian cancer survivors and families, and they have a million resources for Amazing Ladies! The survivor ceremony at the annual walk for ovarian cancer is very moving and you can tell the survivors are so happy and excited to be celebrated. Ovarian cancer is underfunded, and I'm so glad I've gotten to be a part of this organization and help out!!

I am an intern at TEAL and have had the opportunity to work with them for the past two semesters and the insight and hands-on experience I have gained has been invaluable. Since, they are a nonprofit it is an "all-hands on deck" situation which allows me to see various tasks that are needed when running a business. They do a wonderful job of making themselves accessible to the public and always are working towards their mission of spreading awareness.

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 have a cousin that was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and T.E.A.L. has been an amazing part of her journey. They have provided support not only for her but for the family as well. T.E.A.L. has provided workshops, volunteering opportunites and genunie care and compassion. Pamela makes you feel like family and we appreciate her and T.E.A.L. very much for everything they do.

Tell Every Amazing Lady® is a great organization that I have the pleasure of working for!
I originally discovered the organization when I was looking for a walk/run to do with my mom, an ovarian cancer survivor. I found T.E.A.L.® and I was so excited to join the walk and celebrate my mother's strength and bravery. This year T.E.A.L.® is celebrating our 10 year anniversary and would love for everyone to join us at the Brooklyn Walk/Run in Prospect Park. To register go to www.tealwalk.org/brooklyn
