#Jaypee Hospital lends support to ‘Teal Warriors’-- a unique Ovarian Cancer Awareness campaign

The ‘Teal Warrior Campaign’ is the brainchild of an ovarian cancer survivor, and aims to generate awareness and increase consciousness about the deadly disease. As young social media users join the campaign and women go Teal this September, Jaypee Hospital is offering special check-up packages for women who desire to get themselves screened for Ovarian Cancer.
Ovarian cancer is a highly aggressive disease and one of the deadliest among all gynaecological cancers. However, with its symptoms often mistaken for stomach problems, most women are diagnosed with the disease at later stages, making recovery an uphill task. To raise awareness about this deadly disease and increase public consciousness about the same, Ritu Bedi, a courageous survivor of ovarian cancer, has initiated a 10-day awareness campaign to get Indian women join hands in the battle against this disease.
