Teal Talk Day - September 23

TEAL TALK DAY

Let’s talk. September 23 is Teal Talk Day. Over 249,000 women are diagnosed annually with ovarian cancer, worldwide. Gather your friends, wear teal for a day out together and talk.

Join a group of co-workers for lunch. Men are welcome, also. They have mothers, wives, daughters and sisters at risk for ovarian cancer. They should have the Teal Talk, too! There is no standard screening for ovarian cancer. In absence of a test, awareness is best. In the hour it might take to have the Teal Talk during lunch, approximately 28 women would have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

Invite your closest friends, neighbors and sisters for drinks in the back yard. Wear your favorite teal and give the Teal Talk. Let them know early detection improves survival rates by 90%. Make sure they know the symptoms. Persistent bloating, lack of energy, loss of appetite and feeling fuller sooner. Find more symptoms at Ovarcome.org.

Go for a walk with your mom and her friends. Even if it’s a short one it will be long enough for a Teal Talk. Ask them about family history and encourage them to share it with their daughters and granddaughters. Encourage them to see their gynecologist to review family history for inherited risk factors. Families with a strong history of ovarian or breast cancer have a 15-40% lifetime risk when compared to the general population according to the National Cancer Institute.

National Checkers Day (which is also known as Dogs in Politics Day) is observed annually on September 23.

HOW TO OBSERVE

HISTORY

On September 23, 1952, Vice President candidate, Richard Nixon, gave a speech that was called the “Checkers Speech”.  Accused of improprieties relating to a fund established by his backers to reimburse him for his political expenses, Nixon needed to defend himself.  His place on the Republican ticket was in jeopardy as well, so he flew to Los Angeles and delivered a half-hour television address.  It was in this speech that Nixon stated that regardless of what anyone said, he intended to keep one gift; a black-and-white dog the Nixon children had named “Checkers”, thus giving the speech its famous name.

The “Checkers Speech” was seen, or heard, by about 60 million Americans, the largest television audience at that time, and it led to an outpouring of public support.

Thanks to Checkers, Nixon made the ticket and we celebrate Dogs in Politics Day or better known as National Checkers Day.
