Description

Teal Diva is hosting our 3rd Annual 5k run/walk event on Saturday, September 28th at Wannamaker Park in N. Charleston, SC.

Teal Diva is a non-profit organization whose mission is to celebrate life, honor memories, empower women, educate the community and fund diagnostic research for ovarian and gynecologic cancers.

Who is a Teal Diva?

Any survivor of a gynecologic cancer. We are Divas with attitude; with a fresh take on life. We are strong and want the memories of divas we have lost to be at the forefront of our efforts in raising awareness.  
 
What's the story with ovarian and other gynecologic cancers? Why is it so different?

Symptoms of ovarian cancer often mimic what women face on a monthly basis (bloating, trouble with your bladder, abdominal pain, eating less and feeling full) making it hard to detect and has given it the nickname, Silent Killer.  The most unbelievable and upsetting thing about ovarian cancer is that there is not a screening test -- That means the PapSmear tests for cervical cancer, much like the Mammogram tests for breast cancer, but there is absolutely NO test currently that pre-screens for ovarian cancer. Until a screening test is in place for ovarian cancer, it is up to all of us to know the symptoms and ask questions. If caught in early stages, ovarian cancer is 90% more treatable in most cases. 
 

Proceeds from the 5k will allow Teal Diva to continue our mission throughout the Lowcountry area: offering survivors hope and an opportunity to connect with other gynecologic cancer survivors, resources allowing us to continue advocating in our communities, and the ability to fund more research initiatives dedicated to ovarian and other gynecologic cancers.   

 

Thank you for using your voice and helping us raise awareness of all gynecologic cancers.
