Teal at the Turtle Back Zoo

September 18, 2022

It's almost September and you know what that means - it's Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month! 

Last year, Dan and I worked hard to fundraise at our wedding and throughout the month of September and we were able to raise over $5,000 and we're hoping to do that again! In the past year, the money donated to STAAR Ovarian Cancer Foundation has directly funded research that is specific to Low Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer. With an extremely high recurrence rate, it's almost like I'm in limbo just waiting for my current treatment to stop working. That's exactly why I need your help to make sure that if or when that does happen, there will be other treatment plans for me to try. I really want to live a long and happy life with all of my friends and family! 

Join us on September 18, 2022 at the lovely Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, New Jersey! While this event will run from 11am-2pm (that's when I'll be there to greet you outside the zoo!), there really is no time limit. If you purchase tickets through this event, your name will be on our guest list and you will be able to arrive at the zoo and provide your name(s) whenever you would like throughout the day. There are picnic tables if you would like to bring your own lunch and there are plenty of food options within the zoo! If you purchase tickets through this registration site, 100% of your ticket sale will go to STAAR OC. Tickets purchased at the zoo on the day of the event will not benefit STAAR.

If you are not able to attend the event in person, please consider donating at this link and please please share this fundraiser with your networks! You can also create your own team and link it with my event. Let me know how I can help! 

Can't wait to see you at the zoo!
