Please visit my personal blog where you can follow me on a journey through the most harrowing experience of my life. The Teal Diaries explores what it’s like to be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and to battle this life-threatening illness one day at a time. My blog offers readers an upfront and personal account of my ongoing journey and celebrates my survivorship. More importantly, its mandate is to foster support for the approximately 2,800 Canadian women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year. My ultimate goal is to raise public awareness of this devastating disease and to promote early detection. I also wish to encourage advocacy for ovarian cancer research which is underfunded compared with many other types of cancer.
