'Teal Army' Heroes

Hear from our four Ovarian Cancer Heroes about what inspires them in the fight against the disease.

In March, we honored four women for their contributions in the “teal army” fight against ovarian cancer.

During the inaugural Ovarian Cancer Heroes gala, held in New Orleans ahead of the 49th Society of Gynecologic Oncology Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancers, four individuals — a physician, nurse navigator and two patient-turned-advocates — were awarded for the contributions they have made to increase awareness and advance research and education for ovarian cancer.

Hear more from Carolyn Berson, RN, MSN, Sue Friedman, DVM, Susan Leighton and Laurel Rice, M.D., about what inspires them to increase ovarian cancer awareness, and what exactly being nominated for the Ovarian Cancer Heroes Award meant to them.
