September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and locally the Karen Collins “Un-Teal” There is a Cure Foundation is hosting its annual golf tournament to raise awareness and to raise money for medical research.  The sixth annual Tee Off “Un-Teal” There is a Cure Golf Tournament will be held at Bear Trace, Harrison Bay on Sept. 22 at 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  For event details and sponsorship opportunities go to http://www.untealthereisacure.org/golf-2017-tournament.

Additionally, the Karen Collins “Un-Teal” There is a Cure Foundation is promoting Teal Tuesdays.
 Donations made to the foundation every Tuesday now through the end of the year will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000.  You can get involved in the Teal Tuesday initiative by donating and by posting a photo of yourself on social media wearing teal on Tuesdays with the hashtags #TealTuesday and #UntealThereisaCure.

"Ovarian cancer is often called the 'silent killer' because many times there are no symptoms until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage. Approximately 1 in 75 women will get ovarian cancer in their lifetime.  Ranking fifth in cancer deaths among women, ovarian cancer accounts for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.

"The American Cancer Society estimates that 22,440 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 14,080 women will die from ovarian cancer in the United States alone in 2017.

Since 2012 the Karen Collins “Un-Teal” There is a Cure Foundation has raised and donated in excess of $200,000 to life-saving research programs thanks to the generosity of sponsors, donors, event participants, and volunteers.

"The foundation was established in 2012 to provide hope through ovarian cancer research," officials said.
