Over the past several years, I’ve worked with a tireless group of wonderful folks who raise money to find a cure for ovarian cancer and raise awareness. Whether it’s flyers, postcards, bookmarks, brochures or the organization’s logo, I couldn’t be happier to support such a worthy cause.
When I started working with Teal Tea, I never dreamed they would be supporting me during my own battle with cancer. In late March 2013, I started treatment for what I thought was lower back pain. By the first week of June, I was wheeled into Sloan Kettering in NY for four months of intensive chemotherapy. As my oldest son Robbie said, I'm the “luckiest unlucky guy” he knows.
Through many prayers, positive thinking, unmatched professionalism by my caregivers, a bit of Irish luck and the generosity of coworkers and volunteers, I have made a full recovery. My experience has given me a new perspective as I continue to support the Teal Tea.
