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
