September Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Every year in September, COCA makes an extra effort to raise awareness about ovarian cancer symptoms.
Do your part to raise awareness in September!
Wear teal on National Wear Teal Day on Friday, September 2nd and encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to do the same!
Watch for our upcoming newsletter that will contain an awareness message you can share via e-mail as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
At Home and in your Neighborhood:
Yard signs are ALWAYS available! Just stop by the COCA office for your supply!
Teal tree ribbons are also available at the COCA office.
Ask if you can put up an awareness poster up on the lunch room bulletin board.
Share information about symptoms and risk factors with your co-workers by providing each one with a symptom card!
Arrange a workplace "Lunch and Learn" session and a COCA staff member or volunteer can come speak to your group about ovarian cancer symptoms and risk factors.
In Your Community:
Put up an awareness poster at your local coffee house or locally owned shop!
Make symptom cards available at your church or synagogue or put an awareness poster up on the bulletin board.
Would your club or organization like to have someone come talk about ovarian cancer? We have speakers ready, willing and able to do just that! Just ask!
COCA has symptom cards, posters, yard signs, brochures and everything you need to raise awareness in September...and beyond.
