DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -It was eleven years ago this week that Paula underwent her final round of chemotherapy in Iowa City for her treatment to beat ovarian cancer.

September happens to be Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and since the color marking this type of cancer is teal, the month is called “TEALtember”.

Local non-profit NormaLeah Ovarian Cancer Initiative hosts events all over the area with the mission of spreading the word about symptoms, treatment options, and providing encouragement for those fighting this illness.

Jodie Kavensky, founder and director of Norma Leah Ovarian Cancer Initiative, discusses the “TEALtember” monthlong observation and various ways viewers can participate and support the cause.
