12 Months of Teal - JUNE: Sonna Gregory

Many of you know that we lost a huge ovarian cancer cancer and GOCA advocate late last week. Clayton County Government Vice-Chairwoman/District 1 Commissioner Sonna Singleton Gregory will be remembered for her "make this happen" positive outlook on any challenge, task, or project put in front of her.

Sonna and her husband Willie were gracious enough to take part in the GOCA 12 Months of Teal Video Series a few years ago. Their segment is attached. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQPfMsvJPbI&t=97s

A Celebration Service will be held for Sonna Saturday, June 5, 2021, 11:00 AM, at Travelers Rest Missionary Baptist Church, 2112 Rex Road, Morrow, GA 30260.

There is not currently a definitive early detection test for ovarian cancer. Early detection, by knowing the risks and symptoms and talking to your doctor, for now, is the best way to increase survival odds.

GOCA - 10 Years

Since 2011 GOCA and our supporters have had a spring tradition of finding the perfect dress, shoes, and jewelry along with hoping our tuxedos still fit in anticipation of attending the Shaken, Not Stirred Gala. Sadly, Covid has robbed us of this tradition in 2020 and 2021.

Social media will remind us this week of what a special evening and event the Shaken, Not Stirred Gala is.

To keep those memories alive we wanted to share a little bit of the previous galas to remind us that 2022 is on the horizon.

Take a look at the Shaken, Not Stirred Gala retrospect compiled bv our videographer and friend Liz Irons.

2020 Virtual Teal Trot Nancy's Teal Warriors!
Friends, I will be walking, along with friends and team members, in the Ovarian Cancer Virtual Team Trot. I am requesting donations for this endeavor in memory of my Mom, Shirley Gripenstraw. Any amount will help!! Thank you 🥰
Although the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance Gala was postponed this weekend...we are still celebrating our dear friend Kelly Elder Jackson. Love you and hope to celebrate with everyone later this year.
A HUGE thank you to Christine Pullara Newton and Cara Cunningham Kneer of Atlanta & Company for always supporting ovarian cancer awareness as well as our mission, and our events. Still time to register for the GOCA Teal Trot 5K at www.tealtrot.com. #goca #untiltherisatest #gaovariancancer #tealtrot5k #atlantaandcompany

I am creating this Go Fund Me Campaign for my sister- in- law, Yvonne Galloway, who has been more like a sister to me, to help her with her expenses to move out of her home of 33 years foreclosed on, September 4, 2018. Yvonne is a mother, grandmother, aunt and an ovarian cancer survivor who finds herself displaced at 66 years of age. While battling and surviving cancer Yvonne Galloway has been more than an angel to me and some many others in her life. To keep her house, she took in boarders for additional income. As of now her only source of income is her social security check. Since battling cancer, she has not been able to work her catering business started 20 plus years ago and was her main income source. The new owner of the property will allow her three weeks to vacate if she pays $750.00. In addition to the money to stay at the property for three more weeks, her immediate need is $2,000.00 for the first month's rent and security deposit, moving expenses, utilities for a new place for a total of about $4,000.00. No amount is too small. I truly believe that most of us, when given the opportunity, will help someone when they are in need. For this reason, I am reaching out to you via social media to help Yvonne, my sister-in-law, work through this challenging time in her life with the support of her family and friends. Thank you in advance for your support. If you cannot donate anything that is fine as prayers are also welcome. Edna Blount
