September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and starting Friday, Duluth will be bringing awareness to the disease as the aerial lift bridge and Enger Tower will be lit up in teal.
The founder of Charlene’s Light, a late–stage ovarian cancer survivor, says the disease is under–recognized and under–funded, as between 15,000 and 20,000 women die from the disease each year.
“There are thousands of people seeing the bridge teal and they wonder ‘Why, why the teal?’ That’s the ovarian cancer awareness color. And I hope that women see this, discuss it, talk about the symptoms, and maybe someone will be saved,” expressed Kristine Greer.
