T.E.A.L.® is excited to again be a beneficiary for the 3rd Annual Girls Night Out! Hosted by Marshall Gras Entertainment, the event supports survivors and honors those who were lost to both Breast and Ovarian Cancer, while also fundraising for local organizations (including T.E.A.L.®). The event takes place Thursday, September 28th, at Milk River (960 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, 11238). The event begins at 7pm, with doors at 6pm. Come out and celebrate both the girls and the amazing ladies in your life!
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.®.

On June 15th, 2017, five students from St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy stopped by the T.E.A.L.® Community Center with their art teacher, Ms. Boggiano to view the beautiful window display they created for our windows to help us raise awareness about ovarian cancer. Their handmade artwork makes use of the color teal, which is the color that symbolizes ovarian cancer. The work of these students helps us bring more attention to the presence of our T.E.A.L.® Ovarian Cancer Community Center to the Windsor Terrace/Park Slope Community. Thank you St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy students! If you are interested in partnering with us or being featured in our window installations & art displays, email us at email@example.com!

Elly was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 2013 and since then has been raising awareness about this disease by documenting her battle on social media. She frequently posts pictures of her scars, hospital visits, treatments, and inspirational messages, in hopes to educate women on the signs and symptoms and encourage them to seek treatment. It was honor to discuss the fight against ovarian cancer with such a strong, courageous, and truly amazing lady!
