Ovarian Cancer


September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, its not quite as popular as it’s favorite “pink” cousin Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, but cosmetology students at Coahoma Community College are going to try and help raise its profile next week by painting the toes and nails, and doing the eye makeup of anyone who would like to “Go Teal”.

Teal is the color that represents Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, and all next week (Sept. 23-30) between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon, and again from 1:30 to 8 p.m., the Lee Flowers Building will transform into CCC’s fundraising headquarters with any tips given to the cosmetology students going directly to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

Members of the general public are encouraged to stop by, show your support by getting your nails and toes painted teal, and to also pick up some information that will alert you to the signs and symptoms that could help in the early detection of Ovarian Cancer.

If you would like to call and make an appointment, please contact Shirley Hicks at (662) 621-4180 or (662) 621-4174. Walk-ins will also be accepted.
