September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. I know it's the 27th. I'm just squeakin' it in.
Be Aware. Be alert. Be vigilant.
Know the signs.
Teal is the color associated with Ovarian Cancer. (Who gets to choose the colors? I want that job!)
As I'm a pink-or-beige nail polish kinda gal, if I showed up with Teal Toes, my neighbors would think I flipped my lid and would be scanning my body for tattoos and piercings and go looking for bodies in my basement. They will not find tattoos or piercings, thus leading to discussion of ovarian cancer. No comment on the bodies in the basement. I'm scared to go down there, there could be anything in there.
Yes, I've lived in this house for 14 years and have never seen the basement crawl space. Is that not normal?
Check out Teal Toes for more information; what a great way to get people talking!
Go meet Jennie. Put a beautiful face to the ugly words Ovarian Cancer. She'll tell you what it's all about, making you laugh and cry along the way.
She'll make you remember that the words you see on your screen represent a woman somewhere, dealing with a situation that shouldn't exist.
It's a good day for chocolate chip cookies. If you need me, I'll be in the kitchen.
