When I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in March of 2012 at the age of 24, I had no idea what it was (even though my aunt also happened to be a survivor). I went searching for other young women like me and organizations that promoted awareness. For months I came up empty-handed. Then, I found a group of women in search of the same thing that I was and together Geaux Teal was created.
Geaux Teal has given me a voice and a platform to not only share my story but act as an advocate for the awareness that young women can and do get ovarian cancer. I Geaux Teal to be a bullhorn and empower women with the knowledge that could help save their lives.
