:) okay so my mommyy was recently cured from ovarian cancer!
and my friend just bought my old ipod so i figured with the money i was gonna buy us each a sweatshirt. i found a survivor one for her, but i was wondering, if i bought a "I wear teal for my mom" shirt, would that imply that she still has the cancer? or could it also throw out the message that she is over it? thankss!!

It just means she has had it--whether cured, or not cured. That's terrific that it was caught at an early stage! I had ovarian cancer 24 years ago, and was also caught at stage 1a. I've found that a large amount of the ovarian cancer support and advocacy is done by people like me and your mom, who were cured, because others end up too sick, or they die. So a lot of the people you'll see at ovarian cancer support events wearing teal are the ones who have been cured!

No it shows that you supported your mom through her tough time in life. Even if she is cured you can still show support for other victims of this terrible disease
