San Diego’s Teal Women Honored in Historic Gesture in Support of Ovarian Cancer Survivors
September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and, in recognition, the County of San Diego Administration Center building will be turning its lights the color teal. The building will be illuminated teal, the color associated with the ovarian cancer ribbon and ovarian cancer awareness, for the first time on September 1, 2020.
The special teal lighting is in partnership with The Clearity Foundation, the San Diego-based national ovarian cancer nonprofit organization, and its annual Teal Woman campaign. To raise the funds necessary to provide free scientific and psychosocial support to women and caregivers, Clearity hosts its annual #TealWoman celebration. This year’s Teal Woman extravaganza includes a new Paint Our Town Teal and Paint Your Toes Teal campaign. Ovarian cancer survivors and memorials will be recognized in a new “Who’s your Teal Woman?”program, as well.
The Clearity Foundation is focused on helping families facing ovarian cancer with treatment decision support, molecular profiling, clinical trial matching, and psychosocial support programs. All programs offered by The Clearity Foundation are free of charge, thanks to the generosity of their supporters.
Join The Clearity Foundation’s Executive Director, Hillary Theakston, and other ovarian cancer advocates, at the County Center on September 1, 2020, at sunset, for this historic event.
