Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related death among women. In fact, according to the National Cancer Institute, ovarian cancer is the deadliest of the gynecologic cancers. Fortunately, research shows that the five-year survival rate is much higher for women who are diagnosed at an earlier stage—underscoring why ovarian cancer education is critically important.

Join Amy Lasseigne, CTEH’s marketing analyst, founding board member and two-time executive director of the Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition (AROVCC), as she helps light up Little Rock’s downtown bridges to kick off Arkansas’ ovarian cancer awareness month. Take part in TEAL Light Night benefitting the AROVCC next Monday, August 31 from 7-9 p.m. at the Marriott in downtown Little Rock. The event will include a “teal” carpet, photo booth, silent auction, YETI cooler raffle and appetizers and beverages. Luminaries will also be displayed in memory of the women lost and in honor of survivors.

Tickets for TEAL Light Night may be purchased for $35 in advance or $45 at the door. Tickets are available online at arkansasovariancancer.org/TLN or by calling 501-552-3900. Survivors are invited to attend for free.
