DAYS UNTIL NATIONAL OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Welcome to  GEAUX TEAL!

Our organization started with one DAUGHTER’S goal to share her MOTHER’S story and now includes aunts, daughters, sisters and mothers who seek to tell their FAMILIES’ STORIES, all with the ultimate goal of spreading ovarian cancer awareness to women of all ages.

 

We are a group of women in the metro Baton Rouge area whose goal is to make sure all women know and understand the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
