Teal Ribbon Day

Teal Ribbon Day 2019

Wednesday 27 February 2019 is Teal Ribbon Day – a day to support Australians living with ovarian cancer, honour those we have lost and raise awareness of this deadly disease to change the story for future generations.

Every day in Australia, four women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and three will die from the disease. Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival rate of any women’s cancer – a fact that hasn’t changed in 30 years. It’s time for change. It’s time to ovary-act.

You can purchase your teal ribbons for $3 each through our website or in-store at Chemmart pharmacies, TerryWhite Chemmart, from Black Pepper stores, Noel Jones Real Estate, or selected Wynstan stores. Teal Ribbon Day is held every year on the last Wednesday in February.
