September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Teal is the colour of the ribbon of ovarian cancer. Teal is the colour of hope and with awareness there <em>is</em> hope -- of early detection, prevention and perhaps a cure. For now, there is just not enough attention accorded to ovarian cancer. The hospital that treats me is resplendent in breast cancer awareness finery but doesn't find it important to highlight ovarian cancer even for a few days. It's time to make some noise.
