Louisa M. McGregorCo-Founder (in memoriam)

    Louisa McGregor lost her four-year battle with ovarian cancer on March 8, 2011. Louisa established Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation (T.E.A.L.®) with her sister Pamela Esposito-Amery, and together they created the T.E.A.L.® Walk, which quickly became the largest ovarian cancer walk in New York City. While battling the disease, Louisa appeared in many public service announcements, including spots from Gilda’s Club and Stand Up To Cancer, and she appeared on The Today Show and the documentary The Whisper: The Silent Crisis of Ovarian Cancer to educate others. She received many awards for the work she did while undergoing treatment, including an honor by the New York State Senate for Women’s History Month, a Lions Club Humanitarian Award, and a Brooklyn Women of Distinction Award. June 6, 2011 was designated Louisa M. McGregor Day in Brooklyn in her honor.
