Wear Teal Nail Varnish to Supports Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

It looks like that almost everyone already knows that October is the month of Breast Cancer awareness but did you know that March is a month of Ovarian Cancer awareness?

I got this Press Release which I want to share with you as I find it important for us all to know! So please support this campaign if you can.

“Leading professional nailcare brand OPI is teaming with ovarian cancer charity Ovacome to launch Teal Tips: an initiative to encourage women to wear teal coloured nail polish and prompt awareness of the fourth most common cancer affecting women in the UK.

Teal is the recognised colour for ovarian cancer and an up-and-coming shade in fashion and home decor. OPI and Ovacome hope that by wearing the polish, women will get their friends and colleagues talking about the disease and its symptoms.

OPI’s UK distributor Lena White is donating £1 to Ovacome for each bottle of its Ski Teal We Drop shade it sells during March in upmarket outlets such as Harrods, Selfridges and John Lewis as well as salons and spas throughout the country.

Bottles sold during March will carry a label highlighting Ovacome’s BEAT campaign, which spells out the main symptoms of ovarian cancer: B is for bloating that is persistent and doesn’t come and go, E is for eating less and feeling fuller, A is for abdominal pain you feel most days and T is for talking to your GP. Also BEAT information literature will be included with the bottles, which are also available to individuals via mail order.”

You should also know that:

“Ovacome has launched an online symptoms tracker that women can use to accurately record their symptoms and track them over a period of two weeks or more. The tool was designed by gynaecological specialists and GPs to make sure it does not scare women unnecessarily, but will alert women to visit their GP if there is cause for concern. If this is the case, women can print off a detailed report of their symptoms and take it along to their GP.  You can see all the details here
