The Myrtle Avenue Bid have been fighting ovarian cancer with us all month this September! They helped us by allowing us to participate in their outdoor Community Corner event and had bicyclist wear teal during their Community Bike Ride. They also had a team (pictured below) in our 9th Annual T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run. On Wednesday, September 13th, 2017, Myrtle Ave. turned teal to support National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and T.E.A.L.® Partnered with the Myrtle Ave Business Improvement District (BID). We tied teal ribbons on trees that will be up all month along Myrtle Ave in Brooklyn to spread awareness of ovarian cancer. Special thanks to the Myrtle Avenue BID team and our volunteers for all their help.
Join us for the 3rd annual T.E.A.L.® Lighting of Luna Park’s Parachute Jump September 1st, 2017 to kick off Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month! T.E.A.L.® will be holding a press conference at 6:30pm followed by a lighting ceremony, plus T.E.A.L.® volunteers, supporters, survivors, and families touched by Ovarian Cancer will be attending dressed in teal. The Parachute Jump will be lit the color teal until September 3rd, so come out and see our name in lights for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month!
Both teams united to fight Ovarian Cancer and to support T.E.A.L.®. Over 500 T.E.A.L.® supporters, survivors, volunteers and staff walked on the warning track before the game, turning the field teal and raising awareness to both Mets and Yankees fans alike!

Desiree, a student studying Health Services Management at Berkeley College, recently interviewed T.E.A.L.® CEO Pamela Esposito-Amery. The piece covers the origins of T.E.A.L.®, Pamela and Louisa’s original vision for the organization, and how this vision has grown over the years. As Desiree wrote, “What started out as two sisters seeing a need for more support that focused on ovarian cancer has turned into an organization dedicated to support as well as research. Pamela and her sister wanted to make a real difference in the lives of those diagnosed with ovarian cancer and also in the lives of those who may be diagnosed in the future.” Throughout the interview, Pamela and Desiree discuss the impact the T.E.A.L.® community center has made since its founding in 2015, T.E.A.L.®’s different programs, and Pamela’s plans for the future of T.E.A.L.®.
