Head Over Teal

Here is some information about Head Over Teal, which is an event to raise $$ for Ovarian Cancer Research. If you would like to join my mom's team: Teal for Toni (isn't Dad clever) just follow the links below. We are trying to raise as much money as possible to assist with the early detection of ovarian cancer and treatments. We would love for you to join us for the day!! It is going to be a lot of fun and VERY family friendly!!

Hello everyone!

We hope all of you are doing well. Toni is doing pretty well right now. She’s very tired all the time, but still manages to keep her big smile and laughter through it all. Praise God!

You may remember me commenting in her Journal that currently there is no reliable early detection test for ovarian cancer. Most patients are diagnosed in the later stages when it’s more difficult to treat. Well, I’ve joined a group of people trying to do something about that! A few months ago, I joined the Laura Crandall Brown Ovarian Cancer Foundation, whose mission is to fund research to find a reliable diagnostic tool to detect ovarian cancer in it's earliest stages. If it is caught early, it can be successfully treated.

We’re raising money for that research and I’m writing today to ask for your help. I ask that you please consider participating in our First Annual "Head Over Teal" 5k, 1 Mile Fun Run and Family Day to be held Saturday Sept 18th from 9:00 am until 3:pm at the Preserve in Hoover. There will be numerous fun activities for families with kids of all ages as well as the serious runners. This is a pet friendly event so bring the pooch! The Alabama and Auburn games are scheduled later in the day, so don’t let that stop you!
