The Village of Warwick has been decorated with teal ribbons in honor of this September’s Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. “Turn the Towns Teal” is a national campaign with the mission to spread awareness of Ovarian Cancer while reminding everyone of its symptoms. Kathy Colquhoun spearheaded the efforts. Every year she volunteers her time to carry out the campaign’s purpose in the Hudson Valley.
She is a 20-year survivor of Ovarian Cancer and is a member of C.A.S.T. (The Cancer Awareness Survivors Team), a group which empowers others by sharing their stories and giving informative presentations throughout the Hudson Valley. She is a part of the Corinne Feller Memorial Fund team, who are dedicated to spreading awareness, funding ovarian cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and supporting quality of life initiatives to commemorate a young Valley Central High School student whose life was taken at 18 by ovarian cancer in 1999.
