The "Take Early Action & Live" (TEAL) Initiative

If ovarian cancer is diagnosed and treated early, when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five year survival rate is over 90%. That is why awareness of early symptoms and education about the disease are so important. It is this simple, yet undeniably powerful truth that inspired the "Take Early Action & Live" initiative.


TEAL leverages the power and effectiveness of pass-along email to spread awareness at a grass roots level from one person to their circle of friends and family.

The Initiative has two objectives:

The first is helping women become aware of the four most consistent symptoms of ovarian cancer.
The second is letting women know if they experience any of those symptoms on a daily basis for more then a few weeks, they should talk to their physician, preferrably a gynecologist, right away.
