September - Turn the Town Teal Month

“TURN THE TOWNS TEAL” MONTH
SEPTEMBER 2018

 WHEREAS, ovarian cancer is the deadliest of gynecologic cancers and a leading cause of cancer-related death in women. The survival rate has barely improved over the past 40 years, when “War on Cancer” was declared.

WHEREAS, due to lack of early detection, less than 20 percent of ovarian cancer is diagnosed early, when it is most treatable; and

WHEREAS, the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MIOCA), a nonprofit and partner member of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, promotes saving lives through early detection, improved treatment outcomes, community outreach and education; and

WHEREAS, “Turn the Towns Teal” is a campaign promoting awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms, and is held in conjunction with National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, from September 1 to September 30; and

WHEREAS, “Turn the Towns Teal” features teal ribbons tied throughout the city as well as awareness posters and information cards provided for establishments that are interested; and

WHEREAS, the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MIOCA), will cover all expenses incurred by this campaign and there will be no cost to the city; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, THAT, the City of Clawson supports this national campaign and approves of teal ribbons being tied throughout the city during the month of September 2018, along with lawn signs, awareness posters and information cards being provided for establishments that are interested.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, I, Mayor Deborah Wooley of the City of Clawson, Michigan, and on behalf of the entire City Council and the citizens of Clawson, do hereby proclaim the month of September 2018 as Turn the Towns Teal Month in the City of Clawson.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I do hereby set my hand, and cause the Corporate Seal of the City of Clawson to be affixed this 8th day of August, 2018.
