Turn Towns Teal

Aug 21, 2019

To the Editor:

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and this is the first year Stafford Township joins communities in New Jersey and other states to bring awareness of this dreadful disease.

Arlene Morrison and I have taken on this project to hang teal bows on township property, and with the help of family and friends distribute teal ribbons to as many local businesses as we can to “Turn the Town Teal.”

With generous support from Causeway Family of Dealerships, Koehler Acupuncture and Big Apple Bakery as well as family and friends, we can alert women and men by seeing the bows, posters and symptom cards around Stafford. I hope in future years others will join us in the campaign.

Please visit turnthetownsteal.org to see all the wonderful things being done. You’ll note my wife’s name, Marie, appears in the “in honor of” section. I lost her in 2016 after her four-year battle with this disease.
