The Feel Teal Club made a promise to its supporters…and we plan to keep it!
The 2010 ovarian cancer awareness campaign was launched with great anticipation, and it continues to grow….there is still NO fool-proof method for detecting this gynecological-cancer, so our women, are still at risk!
The idea that a “pap-smear” will protect you is a complete myth, this is ONLY used when identifying cervical issues….NOT the ovaries.
The Feel Teal Club works tirelessly promoting awareness so that the correct information is available to the public-
Educating is an integral part of our “awareness” campaign, always ensuring the public are well-informed means they are also well-equipped!
Our Awareness Affiliate programme plays an important role by sharing this message through our members, and their personal/business connections.
Support from Musicians/Artists, Magazine Editors, Comedians, Writers & Entrepreneurs means we are definitely in “good company”….so why not join us?
We do not ask for donations or any form of monetary contribution as our club is purely not-for-profit.
To become an Affiliate you will receive ongoing FREE promotion via the official website and all we ask in return is a link back to us!
We are doing this for women & girls worldwide and welcome any who wish to be a part of this wonderful campaign.

WHO IS AT RISK?
Ovarian Cancer, the second most common female reproductive system cancer, can strike at any age, but it is most common among women just before entering menopause (perimenopause) and then during and after menopause.
This disease also tends to run in families, so women with first-degree
relatives (a mother or sister) who have had ovarian cancer are at higher
risk) Others at risk include women who have not had children or delayed
their first pregnancy until after age 35 and those who have had colon,
breast or endometrial cancer. The causes of Ovarian Cancer are not
known. Some factors seem to put women at a higher risk of developing
ovarian cancer. Many women who develop ovarian cancer do not have these risk factors. At the same time many women who do have the risk factors do not develop ovarian cancer. Other possible risk factors include long term use of genital deodorants & other products containing talc,
& treatment with fertility drugs.
