Dear Facebook Inc, it's leaders and public: We at Turn Facebook Teal to Heal in September are inviting you to be a pivotal driver to raise the awareness of the deadly disease, Ovarian Cancer.
After months of campaigning, we have a small but fierce group of supporters whose lives have been forever changed by this sneaky illness. Over 22,000 women a year are diagnosed with this cancer, and there is no screening tool or cure.
We need your powerful voice to help us teach other women, their families, doctors and nurses about this illness.
We are asking that you turn your Facebook pages Teal, if just for a day, and link up the many organizations that join us in our fight to raise awareness for this cancer.
The only real help now is to detect it early, and prevent a spread of the disease. If caught early, the 5 year survival rate is about 90%. If not, the rate declines rapidly.
I am in a recurrence, after initially being diagnosed on July 29, 2009. Please read this pages stories and your heart will go out to all the generous supporters. We are not taking donations. We do not sell anything. We just want to spread the awareness.

If you sign this pledge and fax or mail it to the corporate headquarters it will have an impact. Print it on Teal paper. I have tried to call many times and have got nothing but abandoned voice...
If you sign this pledge and fax or mail it to the corporate headquarters it will have an impact. Print it on Teal paper. I have tried to call many times and have got nothing but abandoned voice mails and fax numbers.
I can also Take this petition to a Seattle office, and give it to them personally. My challenge is to find the office.
Please help me give Facebook the message. We must keep fighting.
Thank you for your time, as your time is your life and that value is priceless.
