Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation's mission is to promote public awareness and education of the signs, symptoms and risk factors of Ovarian Cancer, while providing support to survivors and raising funds for research in order to find the cure for Ovarian Cancer.
After the late Louisa M. McGregor’s Ovarian Cancer diagnosis in 2007, she and her sister Pamela Esposito-Amery started Tell Every Amazing Lady, or T.E.A.L. They began to understand that as a result of the absence of Ovarian Cancer research funding, women across the country lacked the awareness, treatment options, and ability to diagnose: all factors incredibly vital to these women in order to overcome the disease. Without this research funding, the search for a cure for Ovarian Cancer seemed hopelessly far. Tell Every Amazing Lady is an organization with the goal to speed the progress of both research and understanding, and bring the cure for Ovarian Cancer closer to our present. Louisa lost her four-year battle with the disease in 2011. You can read more about Louisa’s story here.
