Teal Tuesday-why I wear Teal

Before you find your Halloween costume…

Before you get out the fall decorations…

Talk about Teal!

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month….

They call Ovarian Cancer the “whispering” cancer. The symptoms are quiet but persistent.

Wear your Teal on Tuesday! Open a dialog. If someone you know has persistent digestive troubles, nausea, bloating, bowel, or bladder issues, be persistent in getting them to see a doctor! Ovarian Cancer often presents as vague tummy trouble. Ask your doctor for a CA 125 test. CA 125 is the Cancer Antigen marker in your blood that indicates something may be awry.

I recently met with Nina Wu….

…author at the Honolulu Star Advertiser and told her my story. One of the questions she asked was, “What instigated you to start your blog?” Honestly, the first time I battled in 2012 and won, I thought it was one and done. I thought I could walk away from cancer.

Turns out I thought wrong.

In 2014, when it came back again, I realized that I needed to share my information with others fighting the disease and anyone who wanted to understand the battle against cancer-plain and simple. I chose to share my experience so others could learn from it.

So tomorrow, wear your teal.
