TEAL Featured on Good Day New York

MYFOXNY.COM – One woman who is battling cancer right now has a big event this weekend. She hopes that one day women won’t have to go through what she did. Louisa McGregor and her sister Pamela Esposito founded the T.E.A.L. Walk, the first walk for ovarian cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, this year about 25,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and about 14,500 will die. Ovarian cancer accounts for about 3 percent of all cancers in women. A woman’s risk of getting invasive ovarian cancer during her lifetime is about 1 in 71. Her lifetime chance of dying from invasive ovarian cancer is about 1 in 95. This cancer mainly develops in older women. Around half of women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer are 60 or older. It is more common in caucasian women than African-American women.
