Bring Tie Michigan Teal to Your Town!

July 24, 2019

MIOCA is looking for enthusiastic people who would like to help bring awareness of ovarian cancer to cities throughout the state during our “Tie Michigan Teal” campaign!

We celebrate National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in September by tying teal ribbons around lamp posts in downtown areas, as well as by hanging posters which list the symptoms of ovarian cancer. We need coordinators to oversee the effort in various cities/towns, including Ann Arbor, and across the state. We provide all of the materials and directions for tying the ribbons. 

If you would like to learn more about how you can get involved and “teal” your city or even your personal property/workplace, please contact MicheleGatti  at dsgatti1@gmail.com . Imagination and creativity is welcome as not every city is a prime location for “tealing,” however there are other ways to get awareness out with the teal ribbons.

July 11, 2019

We are proud to present MIOCA’s 2018 Annual Report , highlighting another year of continued success as we move the needle to improve the health and quality of life for women and girls with ovarian cancer. As you will see in these pages, again this year MIOCA provided critical support to ovarian cancer survivors and their families directly, while working closely with the scientific, medical, and legislative communities to improve treatment and early detection of ovarian cancer.
