The Teal Ribbon Project

The other day, Mike & I were at our favorite local restaurant, and we noticed all the staff members were wearing teal “cause ribbons.”  I had to ask about it, and, as it happened, our server that day was the instigator of the cause.  Her aunt had just passed away after a long fight with ovarian cancer, and the niece is trying to raise some money before she returns to college late next month.  By the time most woman have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, it’s very far advanced, and the average length of life after diagnosis is about five years.  So the money raised through this project will go toward research and testing.

I was very impressed with this young lady for undertaking such a project, so I offered to make some cards to help with the fundraising.   Here’s my “Teal Hope” card.

Thanks for helping!
