Teal Toes Giveaway *CLOSED*



Teal Toes; Raising Ovarian Cancer Awareness.

"Welcome to Teal Toes! Our mission is to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

How?  By painting your toenails teal, the ovarian cancer color. By getting your friends to paint their toenails teal too, and then by talking with people when they ask about it, to make sure that they know the signs of this whispering killer.
Any time of year is good for teal toes, but we especially recommend September, the ovarian cancer awareness month!"

Why Teal Toes?

  • ribbons aren't enough
  • It's easy!
  • It makes your toes look pretty
  • Teal, the ovarian cancer awareness color, is striking enough to make people ask about it

Why toes and not fingers?

  • If you want to do your fingers, by all means, please do!
  • Some places of employment have rules for fingernail polish, but toes can be covered if necessary.
  • Toenail polish can last longer

Why September?

  • September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
  • September, the end of summer in most parts of the USA, is the perfect time for one last pedicure

Why raise awareness?

  • Too many women with ovarian cancer do not get diagnosed until their cancer has spread. Their survival rate is 45%.
  • The survival rate improves greatly - to 93 percent - if the cancer is diagnosed at an early stage before it has spread. Only 19 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at this local stage.
  • Approximately 75 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage after the cancer has spread beyond the ovary.
This information is from the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
