Color of Teal stands for Curing Our Ladies through Ovarian Research of Teaching Educational Awareness and Leadership. Color of Teal is an ovarian cancer advocacy organization that was founded in 2011 and is based out of New York City. The organization was created by Genese Valentine after the passing of her mother, Miriam Valentine. The organization has brought many survivors, friends, and families together to overcome the aftermath of Ovarian Cancer and help them see the positive to come. Along with establishing relationships with Ovarian Cancer survivors, Color of Teal also builds relationships with people currently diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and try to help make those victims into survivors as well.
