Picture walking through downtown where every lamp post sports a bright Teal ribbon with just to increase awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer. It’s a lovely, festive and -most important- effective way to inform women of the symptoms they need to watch for with ovarian cancer. Kim, an ovarian cancer survivor, decided during her cancer treatment to “make a difference” for other women coping with ovarian cancer. This led to her organization Hope Wings. (http://hopeswing.org/) There’s no question that preventing cancer by raising women’s awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms is an important thing to Kim. Thanks Kim for all you do!
