Park Slope Brooklyn T.E.A.L.® Community Center.  Workshop topics change all the time and are run by
volunteers. These workshops are open to anyone who's been touched by Ovarian Cancer whether it be a
survivor, caregiver, family member or friend. We also invite the general public to learn more
about Ovarian Cancer at some of our educational events. Please RSVP for our upcoming workshops

Definition of a T.E.A.L.® Ovarian Cancer Survivor: is an “Amazing Lady” who at any time in her life has been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer whether she is currently a patient in treatment or cancer free. It could have been yesterday or 50 years ago. We honor these “Amazing Ladies” in a variety of events and programs including invitations to participate in our T.E.A.L.® Survivor Ceremony during our Annual T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run program in cities across the US. We offer free programs and services for survivors and their families all year long.

"As an Ovarian Cancer Survivor, T.E.A.L.® workshops have given me tools to cope with the stresses of diagnosis and the warmth of a community."   ~~ Melissa B.
