September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and up and down Greenwich Avenue and throughout the town, people will see teal ribbons tied to trees and lampposts. The ribbons are to make people more aware of ovarian cancer and its often silent symptoms. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the U.S. There is no early detection test and the symptoms are subtle and often misdiagnosed, which is why knowing the symptoms is so very important. Symptom cards are attached to the ribbons to provide education. Above, Kate Demmerle and Jody Osborn help tie a ribbon on Greenwich Avenue.
