Meet Kayla, the T.E.A.L.®- nominated Volunteer of the Month for August!
After her grandmother lost her battle with ovarian cancer in 2016, Kayla was motivated to educate other women about the condition. She had heard about the work that T.E.A.L.® does, and was intrigued by the idea of volunteering in her community. In the fall of 2019, she reached out to T.E.A.L.® to see if she could help spread the word about ovarian cancer.
Kayla sees her volunteer efforts as fulfilling and valuable to the community. She notes that her work with T.E.A.L.® has been a great way to “extend my hand, give my time where I can, and make a difference.” While her grandmother is no longer with her, Kayla likes to think that she is volunteering in her honor. “If she [were] alive today, I’m sure she’d be doing it with me.”
