Color of Teal, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization that was formed solely on the basis of raising awareness for all gynecologic (cervical, ovarian, vaginal, vulvar, uterine) cancers. Statistically, approximately 1 in 63 women are effected by these forms of cancer, and many are misdiagnosed until it is beyond the threshold for medicine to effectively work.
Color of Teal's mission is to teach women the warning symptoms of gynecologic cancers, educate them on how to open a dialogue with their gynecologist, and advise them of various treatment and available care. Color of Teal raises funds for their Teal Care Co-Pay Program for Women through their events.
