News from Teal Toes

Life Lost, Life Saved

This time of year, there are many press articles and blog postings about Teal Toes.  We can't mention them all here, but this one from Weekly Citizen caught our eye.

A 30-year-old woman has died from ovarian cancer.  She overlooked her symptoms, and her doctors let her down - they thought she couldn't have ovarian cancer, because she was too young.  Her friends set out to help other women avoid the same fate.  They gave out Teal Toes cards, and at least one young woman got a card, read the symptoms, and found her cancer at an early stage.

Tell your friends. Give them cards. You may save one.

Food, color and Teal Toes

3 important things!  And, today, tied together.  Please visit:

Color Your Life

and leave a comment.

YOLO Colorhouse, a paint company in Oregon, has asked some writers to do pieces for them about how they are inspired by color.  Cheryl Rule, a food writer (http://5secondrule.typepad.com/), was asked to participate.  Her piece runs today.  Cheryl was allowed to choose a charity for her post to support and she chose Teal Toes (having lost her mother to ovarian cancer, Cheryl is personally interested in our getting the message out).  Very handy that Teal Toes' use of color fits the theme!

Teal Toes will receive $1 for every comment left on Cheryl's post today so please visit Color Your Life and leave a comment.

 

We love our supporters.

And ache, along with their families, when they go. Rest in peace, Brandi.

Stop Drug Shortages!
