TEAL Tuesday Gazette

Spring greetings from the Quad Cities.
Please join us at Blue Cat Brew Pub on Tuesday, April 23 at 6 p.m. to plan our uprising for OVCA during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in September.

We are so happy to share this edition of our newsletter because we are introducing our new blog, Trending Teal, which contains the latest information about the NormaLeah Foundation and our Sisterhood of the Teal Tiaras volunteer activities. Most of the information that we usually announce through our Teal Tuesday Gazette will now be found on their blog -- with more frequent updates -- while we re-format our newsletter during the summer months.

To see this week's blog and start following us, go to www.normaleahfoundation.wordpress.com.

It has been a busy few months at the foundation. We have given our website a facelift and it is gorgeous! We are now in the process of updating some of the information and adding new features. Visit us and go to our events page to see why we've been so busy.

Ovarian cancer has received a lot of news coverage lately, with some very promising research findings. A synopsis of them and links to complete details are in our BLOG.

Also newsworthy . . . an article about the foundation will be appearing in the May issue of Radish magazine in the Quad Cities. Watch for it! We'll be sure to link it to the blog and website, too.

Please support NormaLeah Foundation. Whether you are able to volunteer, donate, or support us by purchasing items at SHOP@normaleah, we are so very appreciative of your involvement.

And don't forget, Mother's Day is coming up. Surprise your favorite mom with bling jewelry from our BLING4Cancer line. Unique and sparkling, this jewelry comes in 27 colors to honor your loved ones who have been touched by cancer.
