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 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.

T.E.A.L. is the best! Been following and volunteering with them for 6 years. Through them I was able to organize a walk in Central Valley, NY for two years! Great organization. Being an ovarian cancer survivor gives me great pride to get the word out on awareness.

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.

Tell Every Amazing Lady about Ovarian Cancer helped me get out of my slump after surviving surgery and chemotherapy for ovarian cancer. The T.E.A.L. Walk was the prime motivator for me to get out and celebrate life. I made friends. I have joined the group for great activities.
I learned that I am not alone and met women from my neighborhood and region. The members and founder are so supportive and uplifting. I want to help raise awareness.
Thank you so much ladies! Keep up the good work!

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.

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!

My name is Emma and I am a current intern here at Tell Every Amazing Lady. Pamela is an awesome and inspiring boss. She has managed to take a small grass-roots non profit with so much heart and turn it into a continuously growing organization that reaches outlets all across the country. This charity does so much for small communities in Brooklyn and general New York City through spreading awareness and education. I am proud to be associated with T.E.A.L. and I believe the organization will continue to thrive and do great things!

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.

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.
