Get Ovarian Cancer Awareness into Professional Sports!

This petition had 529 supporters

TEALstrong Ovarian Cancer Foundation has been working to get more national awareness for Ovarian Cancer. This petition is aimed to get the attention of all the major professional sports leagues in the United States. Ovarian Cancer has an annual mortality rate of 70% and has not changed in over 40 years. With more national awareness will come more money for research, and research saves lives. There are over 200k women world wide every year. Here in the United States there are roughly 22k new cases annually, out of that 15k will pass away. It is time for Ovarian Cancer to have its spot light to shine. 

Breast Cancer has decreased roughly 36% over the last 40 years with the amount of awareness it has received and the national spotlight  it has been given. Just imagine the impact that same treatment could have for Ovarian Cancer.

Im not asking for accessories or bats or gloves to be Teal. All I am asking for is a simple ribbon painted on the field and a PSA during each national telecast of a game. Awareness is the essential key to saving lives and its time sports and national corporations get involved!!! Sign this petition to get the attention of all the major sports leagues here and support Ovarian Cancer Awareness!!!
