To raise awareness for women of all ages about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer
The continual increase in education and overall awareness of ovarian cancer is the primary founding principle of Geaux Teal. Through this emphasis on educational and awareness objectives we hope to accomplish an early detection screening test, further understandings of the prognosis of ovarian cancer, improve doctor/patient relationships and shared knowledge as well as increased medical education. Ultimately, one day we will equate longer survivorship with women’s understanding of ovarian cancer and its dangers.
Geaux Teal will promote community-based events that raise awareness and increase education and research funds for ovarian cancer.
