Ovarian cancer survivor ties teal ribbons across Mid-South to create awareness

Posted: Updated:

MEMPHIS (WMC-TV) -- It is estimated that 22,000 women will be diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer this year and 16,000 will die. A group of Mid-South women are working to raise awareness to an often misdiagnosed Mid-South killer.

"It was actually my 23rd wedding anniversary when I was diagnosed," said 10-year ovarian cancer survivor Susan Moore. "I had six rounds of chemotherapy three weeks apart."

Now the retired nurse is on a mission to bring awareness to the disease by tying teal ribbons across the Mid-South. Teal is the color for the Ovarian Cancer awareness foundation. Many residents will find teal ribbons at the Collierville town square and Bartlett's city hall and Memorial Park.

"We are going to squeal teal this month," said Moore with a smile.
