You may find it uncomfortable talking to relatives about family history of cancer or genetic testing—but it's an important topic that can empower both you and them.

👨‍👩‍👧 #OvarianCancer is often caused by a genetic mutation—and a history of other cancers can increase your risk too.

🧬 #NOCC can offer you support about where to start, what to ask about, and how to share information.

ℹ️ Rae Ann, and many others, were able to be proactive because of their knowledge. Share their stories to spread the word and #OwnYourOvaries

EA1 Des Moines - While Lindsey was diagnosed with stage 1 ovarian cancer and courageously fought to be pronounced NED, she also learned of her BRCA gene mutation. She made the brave decision to undergo a complete bilateral mastectomy. She humbly credits her strength to her amazingly supportive family, friends, coworkers, and healthcare team. This journey is her story, and she has learned knowledge is power, no one fights alone, and she is now stronger than she has ever been. For all these reasons she decided to participate in the NOCC Together In TEAL, Everywhere as ONE event. Her team name resonates with every survivor, caregiver, and supporter, TEAL We Find A Cure, and they have hit the ground running! Raising over $1,000.00 on their first day of fundraising! Welcome to the Teal Family Lindsay and thank you for all you are doing! https://bit.ly/3lmiN8u #NOCCEA1

Looking for another way to support the NOCC? Consider donating through North Texas Giving Day!

Since its inception in 2009, NTX Giving Day has transformed from an idea to help local people give wisely, to a movement that has ignited a broad culture of community-wide giving.

During NTX Giving Day on Sept. 23, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community. (But early giving is open NOW!)
