Mary Tipton Carter - Just the Two of Us

As important as ovarian cancer education and awareness is we must also celebrate the survivors. Mary Tipton Carter, AKA MT Carter, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 8 years old. She has been a GOCA family member for 6 years. We have been so fortunate to follow MT on her journey and watching her grow into a wonderful and talented young woman.

We are proud to present Mary Tipton Carter performing "Just the Two of Us' with her vocal mentor Martina Albano.

Special thanks to chauffer, grip, and guitar tech Belfield H. Carter, Allan James Paug for capturing this fantastic moment., and as always Sean O'Keefe for making it happen.

12 Months of Teal: JANUARY - Kimberly Emory

We can all share the risks and symptoms of ovarian cancer but, only a few can tell us what it is like to be told "you have ovarian cancer." A few years ago GOCA produced a video series entitled 12 Month of Teal. 12 women telling their ovarian cancer stories. We will be sharing these stories of strength, faith, and hope throughout the month.

The Truffles Vein Specialists Vascular Scanning for Good program in support of the GOCA programs and mission is underway. Go to https://bit.ly/vascularscreeningforgood to secure your scan.

On a personal note, I had my scan done on Friday and thankfully no major issues were discovered. However, a few "areas of concern", I was totally unaware of, were identified and will require some "lifestyle" changes going forward.

This is a great opportunity to take care of yourself and loved ones as well as support GOCA.

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
