September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Learn about risk factors from the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance

BOCS volunteers placed teal bows with the Turn the Towns Teal web address all along Main Street in downtown Lexington.  They will also be found at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center and Baptist Health Lexington along with Bluegrass Hospitality Group sites. CHI St. Joseph Health also has bows at St. Joseph East, the Harrodsburg Rd/Broadway hospital and the Cancer Center. The cities of Georgetown, Versailles, and Winchester are participating too.


Wonderful story about survivor Lauren Weyl in the University of Kentucky Healthcare Healthmatters newsletter.   Her father, John Weyl, is one of our local presenters with Survivors Teaching Students®.

Welcome to Apryl Tandy, the newest Survivors Teaching Students presenter with our Lexington group.  Apryl is both a breast and ovarian cancer survivor, which makes her story even more unique.  We're happy to have her join our group and are looking forward to having others possibly join our group soon.  If you have any questions about STS, then please contact Rose Lewis, Lexington STS Facilitator
